well, the original name is
which is somewhat silly, since tslib _is_ version 1.0smthg.
thus i had to change the references from tslib-1.0 to tslib-0.0 which does  
not strike me as a solution whatsoever.
either the -?.? part reflects the major/minor-version -- then debian has  
to cahnge it's name.
or -?.? is rather useless -- than it has to go both in debian and the  
additionally: how is the Version line in tslib-0.0.pc used? if it has a  
meaning it should reflect the version as well, shouldn't it?

as said before, i have not the least of understanding how sensible those  
.pc files are and how they are related to the real libs, but atm it seems  
to me debian has an issue ...
