Lintian ReportsBETA

missing-dependency-on-libc

The listed file appears to be linked against the C library, but the package doesn't depend on the C library package. Normally this indicates that ${shlibs:Depends} was omitted from the Depends line for this package in debian/control.

All shared libraries and compiled binaries must be run through dpkg-shlibdeps to find out any libraries they are linked against (often via the dh_shlibdeps debhelper command). The package containing these files must then depend on ${shlibs:Depends} in debian/control to get the proper package dependencies for those libraries.
