Package: uwsgi
Version: 2.0.18-1
Severity: low

Dear Maintainer,

uwsgi got a libqdbm-dev build dependency on 1.9.11-1:
uwsgi (1.9.11-1) unstable; urgency=low
  * New binary package uwsgi-plugin-php. (Closes: #699174)
    - New Build-Depends libphp5-embed, php5-dev, libonig-dev, libdb-dev,
      libqdbm-dev and libbz2-dev.

The uwsgi-plugin-php package was however later dropped:
uwsgi (2.0.15-10) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Simplify packaging by offloading some parts to separate source:
    + Stop build plugins for PHP.
    + Drop binary package uwsgi-plugin-php.
    + Stop build-depend on php-dev libphp-embed.

But the build-depends was left. Looking at the produced deb binaries,
and reverse-depends, there is nothing in uwsgi linking to libqdbm
anymore. There is no hit for the string "qdbm" either in the build
logs, other than installing the unused build dependency.

If my analysis is correct, I suggest to drop the libqdbm-dev build dependency.
