Thanks for the pointer.  However, I am uncertain why a solution for pkgsrc would involve an apt install.  Isn't the point to set all the requirements in the pkgsrc Makefiles so that "it just works"?  Maybe I don't understand the underlying context of the email thread you are referring to.

The patch I suggested accomplishes what I perceive to be the goal, but perhaps Joerg will have a better suggestion.
