Package: libomp-7-dev
Version: 1:7.0.1-6
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

While testing flang-7 for OpenMP programs, I noticed that 'flang
-fopenmp=libomp' doesn't know to link libomp. (clang -fopenmp=libomp
has no problem.) It's easy enough to work around that by using linker
option -L/usr/lib/llvm-7/lib in the case of libomp-7-dev, with some
smarts in my to adjust to versions other than 7.

But it would be even better if libomp-<version>-dev installed a
symlink /usr/lib/<arch>/ -> ../llvm-<vers>/lib/
Then flang and other programs would find it in a standard library

It does install a /usr/lib/<arch>/ symlink, but Clang
doesn't accept -fopenmp=libomp5.

P.S. Wondering how I'm using Meson to build programs with Flang?
I hacked Meson. Let me know if you're interested.
