The package declares a build dependency on a version of a package
with a -1 Debian revision such as "libfoo (>= 1.2-1)". Such a
dependency will not be satisfied by a backport of libfoo 1.2-1 and
therefore makes backporting unnecessarily difficult. Normally, the -1
version is unneeded and a dependency such as "libfoo (>= 1.2)" would
be sufficient. If there was an earlier -0.X version of libfoo that would
not satisfy the dependency, use "libfoo (>= 1.2-1~)" instead.
