Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

Since compatibility level 10, debhelper enables the autoreconf sequence by default.

It is therefore not necessary to specify build-dependencies on dh-autoreconf or autotools-dev and they can be removed.
