E library-not-linked-against-libc

All reports of library-not-linked-against-libc for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package installs a library which is not dynamically linked against libc.

It is theoretically possible to have a library which doesn't use any symbols from libc, but it is far more likely that this is a violation of the requirement that "shared libraries must be linked against all libraries that they use symbols from in the same way that binaries are".

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.2 (Libraries) and http://bugs.debian.org/698720 for details.

Severity: important, Certainty: possible

Check: binaries, Type: binary, udeb
