No, libxml2-dev already was in debian/control.in. That's what I meant
with "everything looks ok".

You now just duplicated that entry as I've seen in git.

I'm a bit clueless about this bug:

First I thought you had a somehow corrupted debian/control (since this
is not checked in in git). But I just did a "apt-get source
wine-development": In 1.7.35-2 (yes, your new -3 is not yet available)
both files debian/control and debian/control.in ship with a
build-depends of the source package on libxml2-dev.

Then I did a "dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc" in the just retrieved source:
$ dpkg -e ../libwine-development_1.7.35-2_amd64.deb
$ grep xml2 DEBIAN/control
Depends: [...] libxml2 (>= 2.9.0), [...]

Then I uninstalled libxml2-dev and some other dependencies:
$ dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
dpkg-buildpackage: source package wine-development
dpkg-buildpackage: source version 1.7.35-2
dpkg-buildpackage: source distribution experimental
dpkg-buildpackage: source changed by Stephen Kitt <skitt at debian.org>
dpkg-buildpackage: host architecture amd64
 dpkg-source --before-build wine-development-1.7.35
dpkg-checkbuilddeps: Unmet build dependencies: libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev
dpkg-buildpackage: warning: build dependencies/conflicts unsatisfied;
dpkg-buildpackage: warning: (Use -d flag to override.)

So if I rebuild from your shipped source everything works as it should
(builddep is in d/control, aborts if builddep is missing, and the built
packages have the dependency). I run Jessie, amd64, with some sid stuff.

As I understand the Debian working I used *exactly* the same source as
the build daemons.
Since you do source-only uploads, as I just learned, we can also rule
out anything strange on your side.

I'm not doing a "Control: found: -1 1.7.35-3" yet, because it's not
available yet. But if it is fixed in there then it can only be by

Any idea?
