Hum, libc.so.6 also has that symbol (and dpkg-shlibdeps finds it there
first), that's why dpkg-shlibdeps thinks it's not necessary.
But I hear those symbols on libc6 are weak and thus the one provided by
libpthread are used. Thus this warning is rather bogus apparently. Would
you please file a bug report against dpkg-dev for this?
