We can not upload the latest package to Debian because of a lintian warning:

zaytsev@davis:/var/cache/apt/archives$ lintian mc_3%3a4.7.0.3-1~karmic1~ppa2_amd64.deb 
E: mc: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/bin/mc /usr/lib

Possible solutions are here:


Adding --disable-rpath to ./configure does not work.

Could you please provide us with some other solution?

The investigation revealed that this issue was caused by the fact that Slava generated the tarballs on the CentOS 5.4 machine with Autoconf 2.63 built from sources, but also with an old stock version of libtool that comes with CentOS.

This combination became confused by the way symlinks to lib are organized on Debian build hosts and wrongly added /usr/lib to RPATH as the result.

The solution is to generate the tarballs on a machine that has a most recent stable combination of autotools to date, for which a latest Fedora or Ubuntu machine might qualify.

If nobody has FC12 installed I can generate the tarballs for the next release on my Ubuntu Karmic machine which will be soon upgraded to Lucid as it comes out.

Therefore as the solution is found this ticket can be closed as fixed. Thanks to Slyfox for the help in determining the reason for the breakage!
