[Freewx-maint] Bug#757638: wxpython3.0: Missing build-dep on mesa-common-dev

Package: wxpython3.0
Severity: important

wxpython3.0 requires GL/glx.h to build, but does not build-depend on
mesa-common-dev which provides it.  At the moment, in Debian, there is an
indirect depends that pulls in mesa-common-dev so this bug is masked, but
packages should still depend on all packages they require to build and not
assume indirect build-deps will be sufficient.

In Ubuntu, and possibly other Debian derivatives, mesa-common-dev is not
pulled in indirectly and the package FTBFS.
