I see that pgrep is provided by procps. This is a package with
standard priority, so shouldn't it be in buildd by default? The Ubuntu
version of procps is 1:3.2.8-1ubuntu4, compared to the higher Debian
version of 1:3.2.8-9 so is it possible an unreported (I had a quick
look through the bug list and couldn't find anything) bug has somehow
got into the package between these two Debian revisions?
