No, you are right. It seems both the tar.gz and deb packages provided by us
are built without libaio. For the deb packages, we regard this a bug and I
created this bug report:


For the tar.gz packages, we are rather reluctant to add additional
dependencies like libaio. Unless deb, a tar.gz package cannot announce such
dependencies, so users might end with a dysfunctional installation without a
warning. We will review this decision internally.

Thank you for reporting this problem!
