Is there even a package called that, or do you mean libglibmm-2.4-dev?

Various stuff is happening at the moment with the gtkmm packages,
including two of us uploading packages at once, and us not being sure
which ones were actually used. We'll work it out in the next few days.

If this is my package (I can't check from here) then the problem might be
that I was unable to create a gtkmm package for i386, but I did create one
for arm.
