I think you have misunderstood my problem.  I am not attempting to
install an app, but install the *build* dependencies for the app, and
the build dependencies have missing packages.  So I want to report
that as a bug.

It is not relevant to my question but the app I am trying to build is
gnucash and the missing packages are libtool swig libgtkhtml3.14-19
libgtkhtml3.14-dev and libenchant-dev
