Thanks for the report. The issue is trigered because this architecture does
not have a native compiler, hence the build does not generate any *.a file.
However, I have seen this problem before and I never really understood the
behaviour of dh_install with this. In particular, it used to work, like for
In this build, no *.a file are generated, however dh_install doesn't fail. The
liblastfm-ocaml-dev.install file is the same as
libxmlplaylist-ocaml-dev.install for this issue: they both list *.a in the
files to install.
Was there any kind of change in the behaviour of dh_install ?
