Congratulation to both - your birthday and for the building of grass
for all architectures!!

This is now true since I am not debian-developer and thus need a
sponsor for uploading the package for me. Any volunteers :-)

Is there a way to prevent this? I think that libraries and the grass
binaries should really seperated from each other or at least the
binaries should depend on the libriaries but not vice versa.  So if
possible I would put those file of grass-bin that are necessary for
the libraries into libgrass. Is this possible?

No, I don't think so.

It will be not really a problem. Of course it is some overkill to
install the whole grass package just to build a library. But it is
OK with me.
