Workaround for the bug: glfw#386

  • make install places the libraries into /usr/local/lib/
  • libxcb1 deb places them into (the correct location) /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

Sadly it doesn't seem easy to remove the libxcb1 package because 1.1GB(!) worth of packages depend on it.

The symbolic link at the end seems to a okay fix to this problem and everything works.
