dpkg default flags break compilation
Binary package hint: dpkg
dpkg sets LDFLAGS to -Wl,-Bsymbolic-
The LiVES package has very specific LDFLAGS, CFLAGS and so on. These should not be overwritten.
I consider this a very serious issue.
dpkg should not set any of these flags for projects, or at the very least there should at least be a way to override the flag setting.
IMO this is a very bad design decision.
The problem has been noted in at least ubuntu 9.10, possibly other versions have it.
