That's why I excluded the build system, and only installed the example
code. To serve the a similar purpose as osmium-contrib, showing how to
use libosmium.

If users want to build the code they should apt-get the source package.

Including an build system examples for the source may be a good idea to
help developers get started by building and modifying (copies of) the

libosmium should probably also install FindOsmium.cmake since that's
recommended in the "Using Libosmium in your own projects" documentation.

Yes it should. See:

may be different.

You can configure pbuilder to use local dependencies via the othermirror
option, either local files or via an APT repo.
