Bug#535412: numerix: bashism in debian/rules

Hello Raphael,

Hello maintainer,

While performing an archive wide checkbashisms (from the 'devscripts' package)
check I've found your package containing a /bin/sh script making use
of a bashism.

checkbashisms' output:
possible bashism in numerix/rules line 81 (brace expansion):
        rm -f doc/english/*.{dvi,pdf,ps,maf}

I haven't worked on Numerix since years ... and I wonder if anyone is still using my library nowadays.

Concerning this bashism, I can write a quick fix, no problem. But it may not be that necessary: the above code is used by me in order to rebuild the pdf documentation when the LateX sources change. And they won't change until next Numerix release (bugfix of incompatible Ocaml new release). So there is no need to bother about the bashism for now.
