This is on Debian testing.

My Debian Maintainer skills are definitely rusty :( First, this should have been reported on the Debian bug tracker. Second, it's a bug in Botan packaging; libbotan1.8-dev should Depend on libgmp-dev. On the other hand, 'reportbug' fails when I try to report a bug against libbotan1.8-dev, and http://packages.debian.org/sid/libbotan1.8 says it's a 'debports' package, which means it's not an 'official' Debian package? I'm confused.

See Debian bug #623837; in wheezy, there is no problem with Botan in monotone configure.
