Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E incorrect-libdir-in-la-file

The given .la file points to a libdir other than the path where it is installed. This can be caused by resetting prefix at make install time instead of using DESTDIR. The incorrect path will cause packages linking to this library using libtool to build incorrectly (adding incorrect paths to RPATH, for example).

Severity: error
