I'm currently having a go at this, but I'm running into lots of little
problems getting all the libraries built. Most of these seem to stem
from two issues - dependencies and the upstream packages having
changed. I might see what I can do about parsing the debian dependency
information to solve the first, but I'm beginning to think we need to
maintain some sort of cache of known good packages to solve the second
issue. I'll think a bit more about how that might work.
