I would like to drop Ekiga. The software hasn't seen a release in years, the
git master branch has some active development now and then, but a release
for Ekiga5 is not near (though upstream stated the software itself is ready
enough to release v5 a year ago).

Alternative is to bump Ekiga to git master and hope it doesn't have too much

Issue that gets fixed: one package less that depends on gconf
Issue that remains: Ekiga still depends on deprecated and unmaintained
versions of Opal/ptlib
