Re: [tlug] printer setup and config problem

I see you solved your printer problem.  But this is hideous, and
should probably be reported to Debian as a dependency bug.

You don't have libc-dev (whatever Debian calls it, probably glibc-dev).

This is a dependency bug, as libc provides the libraries defined by
the C standard, and therefore any "generic" C program (ie, just about
anything except the kernel) is going to depend on glibc.

This is something that every single binary distro gets wrong.  (If
Gentoo provides binary packages, I still don't consider it a binary
distro.)  Header files constitute measurable overhead, it's true, but
there's just no excuse for failing to provide them on an open source
