> 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
> debian/rules:
> LDFLAGS+=-Wl,--as-needed
> 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.

Hi Graham,

please read this short tread [1]
and this bug report [2]

I will try to build without libjpeg9-dev
But I am afraid that libjpeg9-dev is still needed because a bug in cmake :(
