Re: [libsmjs-dev]: Missing files

I demand that Davi Leal may or may not have written...

(Assuming bash...)

  # aptitude download mozilla-dev
  # dpkg-deb -x mozilla-dev_1.7.8.1sarge2_i386.deb foo
  # cp -a foo/usr/include/mozilla/js/js{.msg,opcode.tbl} /usr/include/smjs/
  # rm -rf foo
  # rm mozilla-dev_1.7.8.1sarge2_i386.deb

Note that these files /may/ not be the same as those which you say should be
in libsmjs-dev.

See <URL:http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting>.

(FWIW, if your application is intended to be buildable on non-Debian systems,
you need to be aware that /usr/lib/smjs may be known as /usr/lib/js. I got
build failure reports about this when I deprecated gxine's internal copy.)

The surest way to be late is to have plenty of time.
