Thanks for the report, I can confirm it. The failing test is the detection for
the libwnck version. In a sid pbuilder chroot, trying to reproduce the test, I

scapa# pkg-config --print-errors --atleast-version=2.12 libwnck-1.0
Package xres was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xres.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'xres', required by 'libwnck-1.0', not found

xres is indeed a dependency:

scapa# grep xres /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig/libwnck-1.0.pc
Requires.private: x11 pango cairo libstartup-notification-1.0 xres

So I'm reassigning this bug to libwnck-dev, which should not have dropped the
depends on libxres-dev.
