Package: am-utils
Version: 6.2+rc20110530-3.2+b1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

I just updated the am-utils package and it became unusable with the 
update. Any command in the am-utils package would fail with a message

herschel:~# amq
/usr/sbin/amq: error: '/usr/sbin/.libs/amq' does not exist
This script is just a wrapper for amq.
See the libtool documentation for more information.

I was able to recover a working am-utils by recompiling from sources 
and manually installing the actual binaries from the files created by 
the build, e.g. in my case A.x86_64-unknown-linux-deb9.3/amq/.libs/pawd
and similarly for the others. For some reason the make does not install
the real binaries but libtool wrapper scripts, an the latter are then 
included in the deb package, resulting in an unusable package altogether.

Best regards
Giacomo Mulas
