How to check missing header files included from another header file


Hi,

Development Package X has a header file that includes another header file, provided by package Y. But package X doesn't have the requires set to dependupon package Y.

Do you know any tools to check which packages has missing dependencies ?

Packages do not depend on headers from other packages.
Unless you want to compile a source package.
And then : A file INSTALL or other documentation will tell.

I.e. the person writing the software knows from where the headers origins.
And will hopefully write a message about it.

No instructions : Use the online "source dependency lists", Debian, Ubuntu:
Example : http://packages.debian.org/source/sid/libusb
( 20,000 packages.)


Tools : The (autotools) configure script in a source package is meant to tell,
what's missing. But again : Only if the author includes the search / info for
the dependency.
The cmake, qmake, scons etc. 'configure tools' have similar functions.

Further questions ? : Then please tell which Linux OS, you are using.

And include an example of a package with missing dependencies. ( Headers.)
