* Applied Steve M. Robbins reworked version of Sam "Eddie" Couter's
"inst-prefix" patch to have libtool deal properly with inter-library
dependencies between un-installed libraries.
Verified that the resulting packages indeed fix the problem using libgsf
and imagemagick as testcases in a pbuilder chroot.

Presumably because on your machine the library being depended on is already
installed which isn't the case with the autobuilders.

No, just relibtoolizing before "dpkg-source -b" so the ltmain.sh being
included is the fixed one.
[...] computer source code, though unintelligible to many, is the preferred
method of communication among computer programmers.
