Fair point, I was unclear. Similar cases (missing native OS libraries) tend
to be errors. I've noticed this for at least gnutls and libxml2 on 64-bit
distros that weren't yet fully multiarch. I had trouble finding the lcms
issue until I scanned more carefully, since it wasn't an ERR ;).

I don't really see the harm in upgrading it (considering it is a
misconfiguration/broken package, not missing functionality waiting for
developer action).
