Dear Edward,

thanks for your interest in the state of the Debian packages. Please
allow me to move this to the corresponding mailing list

indeed we have applied a few patches locally, you can find them, for
example, here:

The first one is where we disable TH-related features, so that it can be
built on non-TH architectures. Judging from the build failures you
mention, this patch is not up-to-date any more

If you can make lens build without TH out of the box we’d be very happy,
less delta in Debian (which, as we can see right now, easily breaks).
