I am creating a package for Ubuntu. Everything is fine except that I get some warnings from dpkg-shlibdeps related to unresolved symbols in my package (something like: "contains an unresolvable reference to symbol"), always for pthread symbols.

However, after I create and install my package, it can find the pthread library, the symbols are resolved, and it works fine.

I read that Ubuntu changed the location of the pthread library file from the default /usr/lib. Could this be the reason for the warnings when packaging, or there is something wrong in my package?

Thank you for you help
