Francesco already did some work om GMT 5.1.1 in git, see:


According to #747269 "just needs to get rid of changes
in binaries use" is left TODO.

No, that's not a problem. dh(1) supports all major build systems, only
when both traditional Makefiles and CMake are used you need to specify the
buildsystem for dh(1) to use.

It looks like the packages was already updated to use CMake instead, see:

Modifications to the upstream source should be done with patches.
