Hi Helmut,

nobody answered so far :-(
I just tracked down a long chain of uninstallable B-D on kfreebsd-* to
this bug ... ending with a bootstrap failure for libidn2 due to a
dependency cycle between gnupg2 and libidn2 (gnupg2 needs libidn2-dev,
libidn2-doc needs (transitively) gnupg).
Maybe you just want to NMU it. Your patch looks sensible, but I haven't
tried it.
