I guess the first question to ask is whether apt-get is even supposed
to automatically install dependencies for a package. Surely it is?
Most package managers work that way, but maybe APT doesn't.
Assuming it *was* supposed to have installed the dependencies for
libfox-1.6-dev at the same time that you installed that package, I
guess the next step would be to try to get in touch with the
maintainer of that package (again, if Ubuntu/Debian has the idea of
package-specific maintainers). This problem that you've run into isn't
a problem with FOX per se --- it's an issue with how that particular
deb package is constructed. Again, I'm being vague simply because I
don't have much experience with Ubuntu and Debian.
Hope this helps,
