[Freewx-maint] Bug#644570: uses libgnomeprint which is scheduled for removal

Source: wxwidgets2.6
Severity: important
User: pkg-gnome-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: oldlibs libgnomeprint


wxwidgets lists libgnomeprintui2.2-dev in Build-Depends.
libgnomeprint and libgnomeprintui have been deprecated upstream.
The GtkPrint replacement (built in GTK+ itself) has been
available for over 3 years.

We will request the removal of those libraries soon, making your
package FTBFS.

Please disable gnomeprint support in wxwidgets and update it to use
GtkPrint directly (in case it doesn't do so already).
