[Pkg-gmagick-im-team] Bug#598693: imagemagick: compile with libfftw?

Package: imagemagick
Version: 8:
Severity: wishlist

Imagemagick needs to be recompiled with libfftw
to work with the options -fft and -ift.
In order not to add a dependance on libfftw3-3,
this option is not enabled in the distributed
binary package.

Installing libfftw3-3 and libfftw3-dev
and recompiling the package:
	apt-get build-dep imagemagick;
	apt-get install libfftw3-3 libfftw3-dev;
	apt-get -build source imagemagick;
	dpkg -i imagemagick_*.deb
is sufficient to create an fft-enabled
version of imagemagick.
Is this a correct proceedure to follow?
(notably, apt will try to update
over the locally compiled package...)

Would it be possible for the maintainers
to add a README.Debian file to explain
this and to provide a correct proceedure
to be followed by users
in order to keep an updated fft-enabled
version of imagemagick on their systems?

Thank you.


P.S. Some use of -fft/-ift
also requires hdri support
(but not all!)
so this wish item is somewhat,
but not entirely, related to #476357.
