 VLC 1.1.6 fails to build on Debian experimental:

libtool: compile:  gcc -std=gnu99 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../..
-I../../../include -I../../../include -DSYS_LINUX -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
-O2 -ffast-math -funroll-loops -mtune=athlon64 -fomit-frame-pointer
-pthread -I/usr/include/gdk-pixbuf-2.0 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0
-I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/usr/include/libpng12 -g -O2 -Wall -Wextra
-Wsign-compare -Wundef -Wpointer-arith -Wbad-function-cast
-Wwrite-strings -Wmissing-prototypes -Wvolatile-register-var
-Werror-implicit-function-declaration -pipe -c notify.c  -fPIC -DPIC
-o .libs/libnotify_plugin_la-notify.o
notify.c:37:21: fatal error: gtk/gtk.h: No such file or directory

After some research I found the reason: The notify module builds against
libnotify, but not libgtk2.0. libnotify used to pull libgtk2.0, but it
doesn't depend on libgtk2.0 in Debian experimental any more. The notify
module has to build depend on libgtk2.0.
