I expected as much.

However, the segmentation fault in the daemon is much more of a problem.
/etc/init.d/ggzd: line 21: 22386 Segmentation fault

I've already replied to #490420 - (I seem to having a few delays in
receiving email right now so I've copied your message from the bug

At least with what I've done, trying to tighten the build-deps is not a
fix for ggzd - it might help the build problem (I haven't tested on
i386, only amd64) but it does not fix the installation problem (which I
am now fairly sure is related).

If I could tighten the build-deps *and* allow the package to install
without a segmentation fault, I would upload the fix. Right now, I can't
see why ggzd is failing.
