Package: kio-locate
Version: 0.4.5+ds-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


lintian reports:

E: kio-locate: incorrect-libdir-in-la-file usr/lib/kde3/kio_locate.la /build/buildd/kio-locate-0.4.5+ds/debian/kio-locate/usr/lib/kde3 != /usr/lib/kde3
N:    The given .la file points to a libdir other than the path where it is
N:    installed. This can be caused by resetting prefix at make install time
N:    instead of using DESTDIR. The incorrect path will cause packages linking
N:    to this library using libtool to build incorrectly (adding incorrect
N:    paths to RPATH, for example).
N:    Severity: important, Certainty: possible

This is easily resolved by using scons’ DESTDIR option in debian/rules
instead of prepending DEB_DESTDIR to the prefix.  A patch is attached.
