If you look at libxmlsec1-dev you will notice that the dependencies_libs entry is empty, as it should be. > If this is a bug for libgeier, libtool shouldn't copy these > dependencies in the first place. > > And if an empty dependency_libs entry is important for multiarch > support, why is it important for libgeier, but not for xmlsec1? It's important for ALL packages to either ship no la-file at all (if no other package references it) OR to have at least an empty dependencies_libs entry in the la-file. libxmlsec1-dev's la-file is empty, libgeier's isn't.
