Package: paraview
Version: 3.2.3-2
Severity: important
Justification: fails to build from source

Fragment from my buildlog

make[3]: *** [VTK/IO/CMakeFiles/vtkIO.dir/vtkFFMPEGWriter.o] Error 1

Admittedly this is with version 3:0.cvs20060823-3.1ubuntu4+medibuntu2
attempting to be built on a Ubuntu system, but given ffmpeg's tendancy
to break API on a moments notice, I'd bet on paraview having a tighter
dependancy on ffmpeg than the current unversioned dep would otherwise

Actually..  url_fclose turns out to be part of libavformat-dev, but the
same notes apply as it's a subpart of ffmpeg and paraview has an
unversioned dep on it right now.
