[Bug 1337898] Re: Invalid symlinks for libungif.so and libungif.a


@sds: Yes, they exist, but in /usr/lib, while they should be in
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu (depending on the platform). As libgif.* is
not in /usr/lib, the symbol links point to files that do not exist.

  Invalid symlinks for libungif.so and libungif.a

Status in giflib package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  In Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on x86_64 I am experiencing the following bug in
  libgif-dev 4.1.6-11:

  Symbol links for libungif.a, libungif.la, and libungif.so are created
  in /usr/lib that point to libgif.a, libgif.la and libgif.so.4.1.6
  respectively. However, these files are not in /usr/lib but in
  /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. Therefore, the symbol links are invalid.

  I suggest fixing this by placing the symbol links in the same
  directory as the target files.
