Eincorrect-libdir-in-la-file

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

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).

Visibility: error

Check: shared-libs
