Package: gstreamer0.10-tools
Version: 0.10.19-3
Severity: important

dh_gstscancodecs can fail with:

Can't locate Debian/Debhelper/Dh_Lib.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.3 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/dh_gstscancodecs line 10.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/dh_gstscancodecs line 10.

Should gstreamer0.10-tools depends on debhelper? Should it be packaged sparately?
It pulls a number of dependency that may not be necessary since package build-depends on debhelper.

Any idea?
