yeah... curiously, doesn't require it.. 
I just upgraded to get the 1.3.18-2 ledgersmb version, but there
were no missing pieces wrt libmath- or upgrades.

I'm gonna run from the SVN checkout (actually my private tree), but I
want to use your package eventually.  It might be useful to split the
package into a virtual package "ledgersmb-dependancies" (with the list
things to install) and "ledgersmb" (with the actual code).

As, I saw no updates to libmath-* I conclude that this is a problem in
the ledgersmb code.
