Yes and even installed I got the problem, but it is not the most urgent.

In the netgen-4.9.13 package from the Debian/Ubuntu repositories, there are a whole bunch of patches I didn't bother trying to port to 5.3.1. See https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/debian-science/packages/netgen.git/tree/debian/patches?h=debian/4.9.13.dfsg-8
I'm thinking nglib-version.patch might be the one that does it. Do you think this is something we should replicate?
Yes we should replicate this patch since ".so" only extension are for -dev packages.
