Indeed. And ctypes.libraryName() doesn't seem to be aware of soname
versions (https://searchfox.org/comm-
central/source/mozilla/js/src/ctypes/Library.cpp#62).

That's a tricky problem though, we can't make thunderbird depend on
every single -dev package just because add-ons might be using the ctypes
module to load external libraries.

** Summary changed:

- dependence upon libresolv.so (libc6-dev)
+ TbSync add-on needs a dependency on libc6-dev (for libresolv.so)

** Changed in: thunderbird (Ubuntu)
       Status: Incomplete => Confirmed

** Changed in: thunderbird (Ubuntu)
   Importance: Undecided => Low
