    Package: libc6-dev
    Version: 2.25-0experimental1
    Severity: important

    Dear Maintainer,

    libc6-dev on experimental does not ship with static library
    libm-2.25.a. libm.a is a linker script that refers to this file, but its
    not installed.

    This causes for example, busybox static compilation to fail.
