Package: chromium-browser
Version: 6.0.472.63~r59945
Severity: normal


I'm trying to build chromium-browser on lenny, having installed or
backported its dependencies.

However, I get

This suggests the dependencies may need some adjusting, or there is
some other problem.

Installed versions of chromium-browser's impressive list of build 
dependencies follow.
