DecFP.jl no longer precompiling on Julia v1.6 (master)

julia> using DecFP
[ Info: Precompiling DecFP [55939f99-70c6-5e9b-8bb0-5071ed7d61fd]

This may be related to the other problem I saw, where HTTP.jl no longer precompiles, with a similar error that libmbedtls is undefined in that case.

This works for me:

$ git show --pretty=format:"%H" --no-patch

$ export JULIA_LOAD_PATH=$(mktemp -d)/Project.toml

$ pkg add DecFP &> /dev/null && pkg st && julia -e 'using DecFP'
Status `/tmp/tmp.2DKQEhjavF/Project.toml`

Again, did you try that on recent build of julia master (such as v1.6.0-DEV.991)?

Presumably the answer is the same as in the other thread you started: HTTP.jl no longer precompiling on Julia v1.6 (i.e. master)
