sysvinit (3.05-7) unstable; urgency=medium
  * Drop libcrypt-dev from B-Depends, we don't ship sulogin since Stretch
    which was what we needed the library for.

The sulogin executable is no longer needed (it's built by util-linux
nowadays), and its source inside src:sysvinit is dormant.  I've just
re-checked: the package builds and cross-builds successfully.

Is there a reason for this B-Dependency that I missed?
