Source: chromium-browser
Version: 37.0.2062.120-4
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source

Dear Maintainer,

chromium failed to build on amd64 [1]:
Package gnome-keyring-1 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gnome-keyring-1.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gnome-keyring-1' found

This is due to a missing build-dependency on libgnome-keyring-dev.

Even with that installed the binary package misses a dependency on 
libgnome-keyring0, because 'linux_link_gnome_keyring=1' is not added to 
the defines.

Additionally h264 support got disabled, because 'proprietary_codecs=1' 
is not used anymore.

Attached patch fixes these issues, please consider applying it.

Best regards,

PS: Please keep the git repository up to date. (Currently the last known 
upload there is 37.0.2062.120-2.) This would help with figuring out what 
changelog entries like 'Merge changes from the experimental branch' mean.
E.g. what happened with the disable/google-api-warning.patch?
