Bug#192008: dpkg-dev: dependencies from libtool and pkg-config files
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
As the number of packages using libtool and pkg-config increases, a problem
related to them seems to become more common: library -dev packages often
lack dependencies on the -dev packages of libraries they need to link
correctly. As a consequence, packages which build depend on them need to
artificially build depend on those as well, or they fail to autobuild.
I think a tool which generates these dependencies from .la and .pc files
(and others I forget?) would be very valuable.
This bug might be more appropriate for debhelper, but I thought I'd submit
it here for a start. Feel free to reassign.
