I think Debian is different. If a package is b0rked like this, we will
bug the responsible package maintainer. One should be able to trust
that the libraries in Debian provide a viable development platform.

Of course, the situation is different if you just grab random packages
from the WWW. But you don't need to do that with Debian. The package
maintainers are responsible for fixing such bugs if they are
