An other problem is the installation of library whith a binary package...
seems to don't like it :(

Lintian complain...

W: mdb: library-not-linked-against-libc ./usr/lib/libmdb.so.0.1
W: mdb: non-dev-pkg-with-shlib-symlink usr/lib/libmdb.so.0.1
W: mdb: postrm-calls-ldconfig

like to do it well :)
