I should add that pd-l2ork needs a rebuild of the package on Xenial, of
course -- you can't just take the binary pd-l2ork package from Trusty and
expect the externals that need GSL to work on Xenial, even after changing
the control file.

I'm pretty sure that there were similar issues with the transition from
Precise to Trusty two years ago. There really needs to be a process to
handle those. While VT is still using Trusty, I'd suggest a separate
'xenial' branch in the pd-l2ork git repo to accommodate the necessary
changes for Xenial. Someone running Xenial should be able to figure out
exactly which changes are needed and send Ico a pull request. A similar
approach might be used for Mint and other popular Debian and Ubuntu
