Actually, this is wrong. Recent versions of ld-linux.so.2 only display a
warning when some symbols require a version that doesn't exist. If you
build a binary on Debian and link it to a library that has
Debian-specific versioned symbols, it will run on a non-Debian system,
provided that this system doesn't tag the same symbols with a different
