Are you sure you are using the latest dpkg and dpkg-dev ( The
latest versions are in project/experimental, not in unstable.

According to dpkg's changelog, dpkg handles the new ldd output from

(I'm not sure if it is relevant, but just in case: I use debmake for my

'dch -v 11.23', and now the version number in debian/changelog is wrong.
Just editing this file should fix it then.
