Hi Robin,

  There has been some work going on in openjpeg. They removed support
for the old autotools based makefile (at least no more official

openjpeg 2.x can be parallel uinstallable using the following


I believe this would be a better long term solution, if debian could
switch to that convention. We could also install a symlink...
