----- Forwarded message -----
is it really necessary to have available libffado1 and libfreebob0 on 
*all* boxes, including those that have never heard of firewire?

----- End forwarded message -----

This bug could be fixed by providing a separate jackd-firewire package.

Problem is: I need to exclude jack_{freebob,firewire}.so from libjack0.
Currently, this file reads as follows:


Is there a way to specify an exclude in .install files?

If not, are there other ways to achieve this? Like moving the two .so
files to a different directory before libjack0 is created?

Or should I simply list the content of debian/tmp/usr/lib/jack and
dynamically create libjack0.install? (something like ls | grep -v

Another option: statically resolve the wildcard (excluding jack_alsa.so,
it's not available on kfreebsd), name every file explicitly and add
jack_alsa.so conditionally in debian/rules.

What's the recommended approach?
