This is correct (and probably the expected method). My question is: Why
aren't the full set of libraries provided in Debian represented in the
default file? This is, after all, a development tool, expected to be used
during package development. Aren't any, and all, libraries available for
use in a package? Shouldn't they all be represented in the default shared
library file? Otherwise, every time I pick up a new package I am likely to
need to add one, or more, libraries to this file.
