Subject: [devuan-dev] bug#724: libfluidsynth-dev should not depend on systemd

Package: libfluidsynth-dev
Version: 2.3.0-1
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-Cc: joe@???

Dear Maintainer,

the package depends on systemd, which (seems) not strictly neccessary,

Problem: When installing libsdl-mixer2-dev (to build some software) it
pulls in libfluidsynth-dev. This depends on libsystemd-dev and
libsystemd0 - and this in turn collides with liblogind-compat.
This makes it difficult to develop (or test) said software on non-

To remedy I did this:
- Got the source via apt-get
- removed systemd-dependencies from debian/control (very ham-fisted, I
- rebuilt package and installed it

Apparently this works, at least the software (Widelands) compiled
against this new package works.

I did submit this to Debian, but their maintainer closed the bug
because I am using Devuan. Not what I expected...
