[Users] Build failure on Ubuntu 12.10 for claws-mail-extra-plugins

We have a bit of a problem with the claws-mail-extra-plugins package on
Ubuntu.  This package can no longer build from source on Ubuntu 12.10


The reason is that there is a conflict in the build-dependencies.
libetpan-dev is required by the mailmbox plugin, while libgdata-dev is
required by the gdata plugin.  libetpan-dev depends on libcurl4-gnutls-dev and
libgdata-dev depends on (via liboauth-dev) libcurl4-nss-dev.  These two
libcurl-dev packages conflict.  Meaning, they cannot both be installed at the
same time, so libetpan-dev and libgdata-dev cannot both be installed to build
the Ubuntu package.

I don't have any brilliant ideas for resolving this conflict and fixing the
build, so suggestions either here, to me privately, or in the above bug are
welcome.  We're not in dire straights yet, since for now, the binary packages
will remain in Quantal even though they can't be built from source.  But it
does need to be resolved eventually.
