Wundeclared-elf-prerequisites

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.234. That is the most recent version we know about.

The installation package contains an ELF executable or object file with dynamic references but does not declare any package prerequisites. The Depends field in the installation control file is empty.

This usually happens when Depends field in the source control file does not mention ${shlibs:Depends} or, when not using the dh sequencer, there is no call to dpkg-shlibdeps in debian/rules.
