That is the right location.

That's why I removed that link, it was meaningless (until what you're
reporting now).

No:

$ ls -lah /usr/lib/libgthumb*
ls: /usr/lib/libgthumb*: No such file or directory
$

This is kinda weird.

Try removing (and purging, let's be sure) the package, deleting all of what you
downloaded until now, dget -x the dsc file and recompile it. I'll do the same,
and, if the case, reupload the package on mentors.debian.net.

I can't understand why it's acting this way. :(

Kindly,
David
