Package: libxdmcp-dev
Version: 1.3-16

When I try to link programs (like libXv), they fail on trying to link
against /usr/lib64/libXdmcp.la. This bug exists at least on Lenny and
prevents you from compiling xorg server so the file should be added to
the package. I've heard from an i386 user that it exists on the i386
version of the package.

I'm using Debian Lenny on an amd64 system with libc6_2.7-16.

I suspect one of your locally installed libs has a reference to a
libXdmcp.la, but it could only get such a reference if you installed
libXdmcp locally, because the package has never done so.  You could
remove all the .la files in /usr/local/lib as a workaround.  In any case
I'm closing this bug since I'm pretty sure this isn't due to the
libxdmcp packages.
