Bug#596916: libgetfem++-dev: Questionable output from getfem-config?

Package: libgetfem++-dev
Version: 4.1-1
Severity: normal


Up to now, I was compiling programs using only -lgetfem, but now I wanted to
start using the command "getfem-config" to get compilation/linking flags
automatically (for compatability of compilation on different systems).

However, one the Debian system I get:

$ getfem-config --libs
-L/usr/lib -lgetfem -lmuparser -lqhull -lsuperlu -lblas -lsuperlu

but libmuparser-dev and libsuperlu3-dev had not been installed. Should these
have been automatically installed together with libgetfem++-dev, or should
"getfem-config" not output these linking flags?

In any case, I'm pretty sure this is a bug this getfem-config is intended to
be used for compilation of programs using getfem, and this should be possible
after installing libgetfem++-dev

Best regards
