Hmm, I wonder what debian have done to binutils?  You probably should
report this problem to them if it persists.

This error means that a symbol has an st_shndx field equal to 0xffff,
but no SHT_SYMTAB_SHNDX section was found.

ELF symbols normally only use 16-bit section indices.  0xffff should
only occur if the object has more than 64k sections.  I think that is
unlikely for lapack, so the error is probably due to some sort of file
