Summary0003519: dpkg-shlibdeps warning: links against useless dependency
DescriptionAttempting to build and create a Debian package from a .tar.xz tarball created by ./releasescripts/ and built with debuild prints the following warning at the end after faking make install:

dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: package could avoid a useless dependency if debian/doomseeker/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ 
was not linked against (it uses none of the library's symbols)
Steps To ReproduceWhile issue 0003246 is unresolved, one unfortunately needs to put in a bit more effort to create an effective Debian package the Debian way. Something like this:

  1. Install debuild and dh_make on Debian: apt install devscripts dh-make # as superuser
  2. Retrieve a Mercurial snapshot of Doomseeker code, at (currently) latest commit a9995252fabcdd532cddcb763dc6c0931510e056 (or earlier). (hg clone [^] && hg checkout a9995252fabcdd532cddcb763dc6c0931510e056) # URL must be all lowercase, else Bitbucket may throw HTTPS errors from command line use. wtf?
  3. Make a tarball release: (cd releasescripts/ && sh ./ --no-sign) # yes, it's silly and requires to change directory first because it looks for ../src/*
  4. Extract the new source package somewhere: mkdir -p /tmp/doomseeker-debian && tar xfvJ doomseeker-1.2.tar.xz -C /tmp/doomseeker-debian # GNU TAR
  5. Change directory: cd /tmp/doomseeker-debian/doomseeker-1.2/
  6. Create stub Debian packaging files for the next step (accepting single package and any details): dh_make -f ../doomseeker-1.2.tar.xz
  7. Run debuild: debuild -us -uc
  8. Wait. Eventually debuild warns about dpkg-shlibdeps near the end of compilation, before lintian warnings/errors. (Perhaps ignore lintian for now, using dh_make without changes generates lots of warnings.)
Additional InformationDoomseeker 1.2~beta-1+a9995252fabcdd532cddcb763dc6c0931510e056; Undetermined by OP at this time if this issue exists in 1.1-p1.

Probably a false positive? On my system at least lddtree shows the libpthread dep is coming from At least off hand I can't think of anything in Wadseeker that would be causing that.

Edit: Nevermind, was looking at the wrong thing. Will need to investigate why the threads link was needed in the first place.

Edit 2: Comes from [^]

I'm gonna take a look
EDIT: I'd say that it is used by LZMA when compiling under windows. (Maybe Threads.* files). Probably the find_package could be moved to the CMakeLists.txt inside the lzma dir inside the "if (WIN32)". I cannot test this, so I'm de-assigning.
