E build-depends-on-build-essential-package-without-using-version

All reports of build-depends-on-build-essential-package-without-using-version for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package declares a build-depends on a build essential package without using a versioned depends. Packages do not have to depend on any package included in build-essential. It is the responsibility of anyone building packages to have all build-essential packages installed. The only reason for an explicit dependency on a package included in build-essential is if a particular version of that package is required, in which case the dependency should include the version.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 4.2 (Package relationships) for details.
