Exactly but the binary install of lapack should require liblapack-devel
and liblapack0.

I disagree. It will not happen for my packages

What's the hardship that causes you to make such a bold statement?  You
upload the same number of files, the only difference is telling setup
that the package has dependencies.

It's not a question of hardship, there is simply no need for it.

Marco, you can simply remove lapack from PKG_NAMES in order to hide it
in setup.

It's on my TODO list for calm to perhaps have it discard binary packages which are 1/ empty and 2/ have no dependencies, to avoid this kind of confusion.

Historically, this has also caused problems where people have mistakenly specified this empty package as a dependency (e.g. written lapack where they should have written liblapack0)
