It's not clear at all how to divine the version of m4rie in a platform-independent way, once it is installed on a system, e.g. on Debian via apt install libm4rie-dev.

This is desirable in view of e.g. https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/27330

It’s very easy to add such support using autotools, as you might know.

    looks a bit funny that you can openmp compile flags in, but no openmp library to link against.

    looks good to me otherwise. (For Sage’s purposes, openmp is not relevant, one way or another).

But you're right, it's only a de facto dependence, not a de jure one :-)
