dpkg-shlibdeps error


I am makeing an installable package of a binary only program for x-ray and
neutron structure analysis (GSAS).  When dpkg-shlibdeps runs on all its
compenents, I get the following errors for nearly all of the executables:

dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: could not find path for ld-linux.so.2
dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: could not find any packages for  (ld-linux.so.2)
dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: unable to find dependency information for shared
library ld-linux (soname 2, path , dependency field Depends)

if I do an ldd on the same executables I get

        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x4001f000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40040000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

I know that ld-lilnux.so.2 is present and is part of the libc6 package.

Is there something I am doing wrong here or is this kind of error to be
expected when I have a binary compiled elsewhere?
