We don't have 'apt' in the MiSTer Linux.
Also, we have agreed we want programs like this to be independent and not to need a bunch of baggage installed in the main OS - leaving the Linux as minimal as possible. Short of using chroot I'm not sure if it is possible to make 'apt-get' install things in an alternate location.

You don’t need to filter an exact version, i.e. libfaad_2.8.8-2 or -3... filter for libfaad_2.8.8 or _2.8 or _2 and the function will pick the highest alphabetical match. I usually try to use filters which match the highest Debian Stretch DEB package (for libc compatibility).

I agree with Sorgelig and I think its probably better (for user support) if everyone is using a matching ScummVM environment without any chance of variation as far as the installed libraries.
At the very least, this may help to eliminate the "no version information available (required by ..." - warnings which there seem to be more of after the last SD Installer (Linux OS) update.
