Thanks for the info. 

There will probably be a problem with the Debian package, though, since the
header files are installed in /usr/include/suitesparse instead of
/usr/include/sparsesuite.  I am a little bit confused by that, because it is
not clear to me whether the choice of the directory name is upstream
authors' choice or the Debian pacakger's choice.  Christophe: could you
please clarify this issue?
