I've already patched the makefiles to link against debian libraries
except for one "vaca" which isn't packaged and I don't think it's
interesting/worth packaging.  Anyway I'll remove the other libraries
during debian/rules build to be sure that I'm doing it right.

Upstream is very responsive, I'll ask.
