Bug#940681: elogind: Should only build-depend on libseccomp-dev on architectures supporting it

Source: elogind
Severity: normal


Currently, elogind unconditionally build-depends on libseccomp-dev despite the fact
that not all supported architectures in Debian currently support libseccomp [1].

This results elogind being BD-Uninstallable on a couple of architectures [2] where
the original systemd code builds fine [3].

Thus, could you modify your debian/control such that it adopts what systemd does
in this regard and if necessary make the necessary changes to elogind so it can
be built on architectures without libseccomp support?
