For anyone else having trouble compiling on Debian

I had to install the following packages first, on Debian 10 (Buster) amd64: libssl-dev pkg-config libsodium-dev nettle-dev libclang-dev build-essential clang llvm-7-dev

I also had to remove libssl1.0.2. (Nothing that I needed depended on it on my system anyway.)

Installation on Debian-based systems still needs time and fiddling around. As long as there is no sudo apt install pijul I would not recommend colleagues to use Pijul.
