For inclusion of our Debian package into official repository we have to move embedded libraries to external dependencies. Those are (at the time of writing):

There are  libqhull-dev,  libblas-dev and  liblapack-dev, respectively.

And probably libSVM (at least we have it mentioned in licenses file).

We also include LIBLINEAR, which we can link from  liblinear-dev. However Linpack is not Lapack. Also the dqrdc2.c is actually a modified dqrdc (linpack) that is used in R. In fact all the functions in linpack directory could be linked from  r-base-core

External libsvm, liblinear and blas libraries can now be linked by passing shared library names to make (also adding include search paths if necessary by setting CXXFLAGS, for instance -I/usr/include/libsvm-3.0).


Note that libsvm in debian (squeeze) is an older version (2.0) and is not compatible with orange (needs at least 3.0).
