Quoting Aurelien Jarno (aurel32 at debian.org):
> Package: garmin-forerunner-tools
> Version: 0.10repacked-5
> Severity: wishlist
> Dear Maintainer,
> garmin-forerunner-tools has a build-depends on libusb-dev. A few years ago upstream
> has released a new major version libusb 1.0 with a different API which
> aims to fix design deficiencies with USB 2.0 and 3.0 in mind.
> The old libusb 0.1 package is not supported upstream anymore and should
> be considered deprecated.
> If garmin-forerunner-tools supports the new libusb 1.0 library, please consider
> switching the build-depends from libusb-dev to libusb-1.0-0-dev. If not
> please inform upstream that porting the software to the new API is
> recommended.

As one would expect, switching the build dependency was not enough:

checking for libusb-config... no
configure: error: cannot build garmintools without libusb
debian/rules:19: recipe for target 'config.status' failed
make: *** [config.status] Error 1
dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2
E: Failed autobuilding of package
