        Most of the incantations of checklib did so on a per binary
 object basis -- which is useless in packages like fvwm, that have
 gazillions of plugins generated from the same CFLAGS in a global
 makefile. If some binary in a .deb needs it, a library can't be
 eliminated from build depends, so the lib minimization can't be done.

        Has this been fixed in the latest incantation?

        I ended up creating a checklib.sh that does the checking based
 on _all_ binary objects shipped in the package at one time; and this is
 what I use in my packages now.


Is this TERMINAL fun?
