Either is packaged separately and used in other software,
in which case monotone should build-depend on it and not built it at
all; or, lib3rdparty is a monotone-only construct, in which case
monotone should only build the static version; better yet, do not build
it at all as a library and link the constituent object files directly
into the "mtn" executable.

The name suggests that "lib3rdparty" in fact contains software that is
not part of monotone; in this case the Debian package for monotone
should not build it at all and instead build-depend and link with the
corresponding libraries (plural).
