That's the usual way to fix this kind of issues, when there's an
admin/ directory around. Note that in the general case, “autoreconf
-vfi” does what you need almost all the time, but sometimes you need
to run each and every autotools command with appropriate cwd etc.

Yeah. Note that when dpkg-shlibdeps complains about missing symbols, a
plugin architecture can be an explanation. We can discuss privately
another issue that can happen at build time because of missing symbols
if you like.
