Lintian ReportsBETA

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).

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit c1c05b0. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check build-systems/libtool/la-file.
