Artful: Inkscape depending old libgtkmm & libgdkmm

$ ldd /usr/bin/inkscape|grep gtkmm => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fb4612ce000)
$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
libgtkmm-2.4-1v5:amd64: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
$ dpkg-query -W libgtkmm-2.4-1v5:amd64
libgtkmm-2.4-1v5:amd64	1:2.24.5-1

And I can see that the inkscape package does depend on "libgtkmm-2.4-1v5
(>= 1:2.24.0)".

If you have /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (->, then is this an ldconfig issue? Did you run out
of disk space at any point? Does "sudo ldconfig" fix it?

Can you reproduce the problem on an Artful VM? If not, you could figure
out how your system differs from there. If you can, you should be able
to provide exact steps to reproduce your issue.
