Running lintian with the '-i' option, or filtering its output through
lintian-info(1) will give more information about the message:

$ echo "W: kcdlabel: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/bin/kcdlabel /usr/X11R6/lib" | lintian-info
W: kcdlabel: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/bin/kcdlabel /usr/X11R6/lib
N:   The binary or shared library defines the `RPATH'. Usually this is a
N:   bad thing. Most likely you will find a Makefile with a line like:
N:       gcc test.o -o test -Wl,--rpath
N:   or
N:       gcc test.o -o test -R/usr/local/lib
N:   Please contact debian-devel@lists.debian.org if you have questions
N:   about this.
