Looks like this release bumped the required version of libxcb-util from 0
to 1, doing the following on 5.15.1 gives:

LD_DEBUG=libs python -c "import matplotlib.pyplot as plt; plt.figure()"
2>&1 | grep libxcb-util
       804: find [0]; searching
       804: calling init: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

But on 5.15.2 it gives:
       817: find [0]; searching

Plus a whole bunch of tries that fail. Is it possible to compile the wheels
to use There is no libxcb-util1 on Debian 10.5.
