Whow! That is quite old.

I am wondering why I can't just put the library into <package>.shlibs
(which is mentioned, but not documented in the dh_makeshlibs manpage) --
in this case I get additionally the warning

How would I ensure than the creation of the automatic debug package?
When I just use the existing "strip" command, the debugging symbols just
get removed, and also, how does dh know that it shoud build a debug
package if it does not know that it contains a shared lib?

Best regards
