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 or RUNPATH. 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 or RUNPATH 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/RUNPATH 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 for details.
