I'm adding xmount's upstream developer Gillen Daniel to Cc.

I've just provided a trivial patch which tries to address that:

| checking for libewf_handle_open in -lewf... yes
| [...]
| checking libewf.h usability... yes
| checking libewf.h presence... yes
| checking for libewf.h... yes

% dpkg -x ../xmount_0.5.0-3_amd64.deb  foo
% ldd foo/usr/bin/xmount| grep libewf
        libewf.so.2 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libewf.so.2 (0x00007fa1dde9e000)

I haven't had time to test the result yet though.

You can find my changes in branch mika/libewf-20130416 of
xmount.git which I just copied to:


Jeremy, I'd appreciate testing.

Daniel, I'd appreciate your feedback as upstream developer and
whether this is the prefered way to address the issue in your
upstream sources.
