Wshared-library-lacks-prerequisites

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The listed shared library doesn't include information about the other libraries against which it was linked.

More specifically, "ldd foo.so" should report such other libraries. In your case, it reports "statically linked".

The fix is to specify the libraries. One way to do so is to add something like "-lc" to the command-line options for "ld".
