Failed to stop defining RPATH in libncl


I'm trying to package libncl[1] but I failed to fight the following
lintian error:

E: ncl-tools: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath usr/bin/NCLconverter /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ncl
N:    The binary or shared library sets RPATH. This overrides the normal
N:    library search path, possibly interfering with local policy and causing
N:    problems for multilib, among other issues.
N:    The only time a binary or shared library in a Debian package should set
N:    RPATH is if it is linked to private shared libraries in the same
N:    package. In that case, place those private shared libraries in
N:    /usr/lib/<package>. Libraries used by binaries in other packages should
N:    be placed in /lib or /usr/lib as appropriate, with a proper SONAME, in
N:    which case RPATH is unnecessary.
N:    To fix this problem, look for link lines like:
N:        gcc test.o -o test -Wl,--rpath,/usr/local/lib
N:    or
N:        gcc test.o -o test -R/usr/local/lib
N:    and remove the -Wl,--rpath or -R argument. You can also use the chrpath
N:    utility to remove the RPATH.
N:    Refer to https://wiki.debian.org/RpathIssue for details.
N:    Severity: serious, Certainty: possible
N:    Check: binaries, Type: binary, udeb
E: ncl-tools: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath usr/bin/NEXUSnormalizer /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ncl
E: ncl-tools: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath usr/bin/NEXUSvalidator /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ncl

I deactivated my quilt patches and the override_dh_auto_configure since
nothing really helped.  Any hint would be welcome.

Kind regards
