Interesting, the apt result is quite different and shows gnome-menus as a dependency:

root at ron:/home # apt show menulibre | grep -A2 Depend
Depends: python3, python3:any (>= 3.3.2-2~), gnome-menus (>= 3.5.3), python3-gi
         (>= 3.0), python3-psutil, gir1.2-gtk-3.0, gir1.2-gmenu-3.0 (>= 3.5.3),
         gir1.2-glib-2.0, gir1.2-gdkpixbuf-2.0, xdg-utils

                Das Zweck der Arbeit soll das Gemeinwohl sein,
               dann bringt Arbeit Segen, dann ist Arbeit Gebet.
