OK, so in modern, sensible development platforms you have a means to specify dependencies and install them.
From what I’ve seen, the world of Linux/C/Vala development currently doesn’t have such a thing. Folks list their dependencies in readme files and you’re supposed to install them one by one, e.g., using apt. (Please someone correct me if I’m wrong, as I’d LOVE to be wrong on this.)
So, question, before I shave yet another yak: do any dependency management systems exist for this?
