My answer was cryptic. Let's recap:

As seclib >=2 is not available thru PEAR, this dep should be removed
from package.xml. When the package is available thru composer instead,
upstream ships it under a bundle directory. Upstream will guide you
once you've sent the minimal pull-request (i.e with stripped
package.xml + patches php files).

If Ubuntu is interrested to improve Horde in Debian (and transitively
in Ubuntu), I need help on #825256
