[Pkg-allegro-maintainers] Bug#606252: liballegro4.2-dev: liballegro is available upstream and required to compile opensonic

Package: liballegro4.2-dev
Version: 2:4.2.2-2.2+b1
Severity: normal


On debian, liballegro is outdated. This problems occurs when
I try to  compile opensonic:

    $ ./configure
    Open Surge version 0.2.0
    Using CFLAGS=' '
    WARNING: your Allegro version is 4.2.2. The recommended version is 4.4.1.
             Open Surge may not compile properly!.
    CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:67 (MESSAGE):
      Fatal error: libloadpng not found! Please read the user manual
      (readme.html) to get help.

According to google, libloadpng is available with more recent versions
of allegro.

I know that the timing sucks because of Squeeze freeze, but would it
be possible to have a liballegro4.4-dev in Sid ?

All the best
