Hi Colin,


What application are you trying to install and what does apt-get say for the dependencies?

I think you have misunderstood my problem. I am not attempting to
install an app, but install the *build* dependencies for the app, and
the build dependencies have missing packages. So I want to report
that as a bug.

It is not relevant to my question but the app I am trying to build is
gnucash and the missing packages are libtool swig libgtkhtml3.14-19
libgtkhtml3.14-dev and libenchant-dev

I am far from an expert, and can't even tell you where to look. But I
see this as a logic problem.


the build-dep switch reads the <some-app> source, finds the dependencies
and installs them, right?


One of two things is going on. Either the source correctly lists the
missing packages as dependencies and build-dep is missing them, or the
source does not correctly list them. It seems to me you need to figure
out which.


Someone with more knowledge of how such things work may give a better
answer.

I'll be honest, I'm no expert to. lol. You can install gnucash with sudo
apt-get install gnucash. Is there a reason why you are building it from
source when it is already in repo?

Are you trying to build on Natty or on Oneiric Beta 1?

Oneiric. I have reported it as a bug against gnucash.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnucash/+bug/846846
It is not causing me a problem of course as I have already worked out
what is missing. I just wanted to report it for those who come after
me.

The build-deps have changed for gnucash since maverick. Gtkhtml has been
replaced with Webkit. Swig is not needed because gnucash is built from
tarball and not from git or svn. Libenchant is a dependency of
libwebkitgtk and not gnucash now. I'm not sure why libtool isn't needed
for building, but I assume it's function may have been deprecated, or
superseded by another tool.

To answer your question, though, you would file the bug against the
gnucash package version under the Ubuntu release it appears in. However,
if you are trying to build a version of gnucash that is not in the repos
of the Ubuntu version that you're using, then you'll be on your own in
figuring out the dependencies. Build-dep only pulls in the packages needed
to build the particular version of the application for the particular
Ubuntu release it shipped with.
