Looking for a autotools/libtool expert: Unnecessarily linked libraries

tags 353693 help

The Problem:

- Binaries in the tetex-bin package are unnecessarily linked against
  libraries they do not use directly, but only indirectly through other
  libraries [1].  

- The solution described at [2] doesn't work, probably because the
  package doesn't use automake.


- Have some knowledge of the internal workings of autotools and libtool,

- You want to take the opportunity to finally learn about these

- You have some time left 

- You want to have fun debugging this issue, which isn't an important
  problem now, but might get really annoying in the future

What we provide:

- A maintainer team (the Debian TeX Task Force) who are always eager to
  learn, to listen to clever explanations, and to read your patches

- a package using autoconf2.13

- an unreleased upstream tree that has already been converted to

Looking forward to receiving your application, including a short,
handwritten resume and desired salary ;-),

for the Debian TeX Task Force
