E binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath

All reports of binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The binary or shared library sets RPATH. This overrides the normal library search path, possibly interfering with local policy and causing problems for multilib, among other issues.

The only time a binary or shared library in a Debian package should set RPATH is if it is linked to private shared libraries in the same package. In that case, place those private shared libraries in /usr/lib/package. Libraries used by binaries in other packages should be placed in /lib or /usr/lib as appropriate, with a proper SONAME, in which case RPATH is unnecessary.

To fix this problem, look for link lines like:

        gcc test.o -o test -Wl,--rpath,/usr/local/lib


        gcc test.o -o test -R/usr/local/lib

and remove the -Wl,--rpath or -R argument. You can also use the chrpath utility to remove the RPATH.

Refer to http://wiki.debian.org/RpathIssue for details.
