Wunwanted-path-too-specific

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.264. That is the most recent version we know about.

The file debian/not-installed lists a path that may cause unexpected build failures. The path is too specific.

A common problem are entries starting with usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. The sources will build fine on amd64 but not on other architectures, because the paths to do exist.

Please consider using an asterisk, which will work fine.

Refer to Bug#961104, Bug#961960, and Bug#961973 for details.
