Here's a patch. I hope I've used all the proper utility functions for
finding libraries and extracting headers.

So far as I can tell, debbugs doesn't keep track of "bug subscriptions",
and putting the package maintainer in the Cc header is all we need to
do, right?

Anyhow, I'm sure this will require tweaking, but take a look and let me

Also, I've included a second patch to `lm-maintainer', which is (I hope)
a fairly minor fix.
