Description

While building .deb for libosmocore following warning was observed:

sed -i "/dependency_libs/ s/'.*'/''/" `find . -name '*.la'`
dh_install
dh_install: Please use dh_missing --list-missing/--fail-missing instead
dh_install: This feature will be removed in compat 12.

We should follow this recommendation and update our packaging before compat 12 becomes mainstream. We should also check other Osmocom .deb packages because they might have similar issues.

The warning still shows up in debian 10 and 12 package builds of libosmocore. It comes from dh_install being called with --fail-missing.

However this happens internally by dh (debhelper), the only place we have --fail-missing is here in debian/rules:

%:
    dh $@ --with autoreconf --fail-missing

Nothing to do here.
