Visibility: error

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".
