You're welcome. Also, backporting flightgear 3.4.0 to wheezy showed that
its Build-Depends could be tightened a bit more:

  - sqlite 3.7.14 or later is required because of sqlite3_close_v2()
    (cf. <http://www.sqlite.org/changes.html>);

  - the version of hts_engine in wheezy is too old (does not seem to
    have HTS_Engine_set_speed()); I don't know the exact minimum version
    required, but of course version 1.08 present in sid is OK
    (/usr/share/doc/libhtsengine-dev/changelog.gz is very terse).

I built flightgear with the following patch:

I can send it in 'git format-patch' format if you wish.

No problem to build simgear and use the flightgear-data/experimental
binary packages as is. flightgear-data-base depends on libjs-jquery-flot
and libjs-leaflet which are not in wheezy. I backported them by means of
a rebuild (which was not fun because of many B-Deps). However, being
arch: all, the packages from sid could probably be used as is.
