Hi all,

we have many packages which are build against popt. Some of them
have included a bundled (inlined) verion of popt. But they are using
Debian's libopt-dev like pkg-config.

Can someone please advise me on how to handle this. I don't find a
section in Debian's Policy which describes how to handle inlined
libs, which exist as a sepearte package as well.

Does one know why some upstream developers are packaging popt
inside? Are there any advantages to use inlined popt over

Thanks for any suggestions
