Source: pillow
Version: 5.0.0
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I get:
root@:~# apt-get build-dep pillow
Reading package lists... Done
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 builddeps:pillow : Depends: python-olefile but it is not installable
                    Depends: python3-olefile but it is not installable
                    Depends: libraqm-dev but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


root@:~# apt-get check && echo ok
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

After manually installing Build-Depends packages, except for the three unmet
dependencies reported by builddeps above, and additionally installing python-
sphinx and python-sphinx-rtd-theme (Build-Depends-Indep mentions the python3
versions of those sphinx packages), then, the command debuild -d -b -uc -us

So, removing python-olefile, python3-olefile, and libraqm-dev from Build-
Depends may suffice.
