Well, this is a topic for once my dpkg-shlibdeps implementation has been
merged. But feel free to explain your needs in

You've given lots of links and info but I don't really know in what
situation you are calling dpkg-shlibdeps and what kind of change do you

I'm however fully aware that dpkg-shlibdeps is not really cross-compiling
friendly. It's also difficult to be friendly since all the information
that it uses comes from /var/lib/dpkg/info/ which corresponds to the the
host information (and not the info of the target) and AFAIK there's not
standard location that we can use to lookup the information corresponding
to the target. 

In summary, please sum up your needs in a new mail that you send to
debian-dpkg@lists.debian.org and maybe open a bug report on the topic.

Hmm - that one came straight back so I'm asking here.

Precisely what do we need from the next version of dpkg-shlibdeps ?
