Dear Gianfranco,

Actually it's an issue raised by James Clarke:
- https://lists.debian.org/debian-sparc/2016/08/msg00035.html

As he pointed out, it's a bug in cmake config in libcork source tree.

It involves library transition, and I was not familiar with it, so I
didn't try to fix it until recently I learned how to do transition so
here's the upload and RFS report.

Since all packages depends on libcork is maintained by me, and I can
update those rdepends package accordingly, so there's no risk for this
