Thanks for the update! The control file is dynamically updated when the deb
package is generated, so the one you are looking at is merely a template.
Check the packages/linux_make/build/DEBIAN folder for the actual control
package that is built as a result of this process.

On a related note, I am wondering if it may not be a bad idea to start with
removing all unneeded libraries and work with only those that users mostly
use. And then slowly expand to include those that users want while improving
upon them (this is what I did with a number of mixed and ggee objects but is
time-consuming and assuring quality across the board is going to take quite
some time). What do you guys use in your labs other than vanilla pd?
