Bug#725649: nvcc fatal : Path to libdevice library not specified

It seems error lies with nvidia-cuda-toolkit.
I've downloaded and tried to compile NVIDIA examples and got:
$ make
make[1]: Wejście do katalogu
"/usr"/bin/nvcc -ccbin g++ -I../../common/inc  -m64    -gencode
arch=compute_20,code=sm_20 -gencode arch=compute_30,code=sm_30 -gencode
arch=compute_35,code=\"sm_35,compute_35\" -o simpleCubemapTexture.o -c
nvcc fatal   : Path to libdevice library not specified
make[1]: *** [simpleCubemapTexture.o] Błąd 255
make[1]: Opuszczenie katalogu
make: *** [0_Simple/simpleCubemapTexture/Makefile.ph_build] Błąd 2

so PyCUDA is just victim of this error. PyOpenCL works without
problems so it seems that fault lies with nvcc, not with
libraries responsible for compilation of kernels.

BTW - please add Conflicts: libcuinj64-5.0 to libcuinj64-5.5,
as both provide the same file and I had to manually remove
the former and unpack the latter during installation of CUDA 5.5

Best regards.
