Just change libgsl0ldbl to libgsl2 in the control file, then everything
should be fine for Xenial and later. (Also, if you build the Debian package
yourself, note that the build dependency is now libgsl-dev rather than

It looks like beginning with Xenial, Ubuntu has updated its GSL package
from 1.16 to 2.1 (which has been out since Nov 2015). On Arch we've already
been using GSL 2.x for building pd-l2ork since quite some time, so far I
didn't notice any issues.
