I let Radi (we say radi yes ?) answer this, he already discuss with the
upstream author about this. This is indeed a problem but if we are more
than one to ask the maintream author maybe they will react positively.

I just checkout the objcryst-fox package

apt-get source objcryst-fox ;)

you are right a cctbx.tar.gz package is emmbeded...
Baptist can you contact carlos segre and check with him about this issue.
once we managed to package cctbx it would be nice to fix objcryst-focx also.

I will contact Vincent favre nicolin, the mainstream author about this
and see with him if objcryst-fox is compatible with the current cctbx.
