Hi Maintainer

Please remove the unused build dependency on libjpeg9-dev from yoshimi.
It is not possible to synchronize yoshimi directly into Ubuntu as 
libjpeg9-dev does not exist there.
In Debian and Ubuntu the libjpeg build dependency should be unversioned, 
i.e. libjpeg-dev, see [1] [2].
However, since yoshimi does not need this build dependency, it can be 
removed altogether.

While looking at the packaging, I noticed the following line in 


This has no effect.  What you want is this (see [3]):

export DEB_LDFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND=-Wl,--as-needed

Lastly, the generated file src/version.txt is not removed after 
building, this prevents the package from being built twice in a row.

Please see the attached patch that makes all of these changes.
