* debian/rules: Drop update-patch-series target, this was when the package
was maintained in git.

hurd-i386 to be built with rpath (Closes: #677343)

against libX11 and the modules against libgmodule-2.0

versioned dependencies on the minimum versions of gtk2/gtk3 that support
lookups in the multiarch path.

since the latter is the only package which uses it; and make
gnome-session-canberra Architecture: any.
