Hi Bhavani,

According to the Debian bug, it seems that it was a bug in cdbs that
got fixed in latest cdbs. Looking at the changelog of cdbs, you can
see this comment:
"   * Fix ensure makefile-vars.mk is usable without makefile.mk: add
     simpler fallback for cdbs_make_curbuilddir.
     Closes: bug#596950. Thanks to Lucas Nussbaum and others."
and the rules file of libgdchart-gd2 contains an include of
makefile-vars.mk but no include of makefile.mk, so it seems to be the
root cause of the FTBFS.

You then have 2 options:
- fix cdbs
- fix libgdchart-gd2 by either include makefile.mk or defining the
missing variable

I think that the second choice is less intrusive, but if cdbs is
broken in some cases, I think it's worth fixing it.
