The paths of external tools such as 'strings-static' are erroneous. For example, 'string-static' is installed in /lib/chkrootkit; and chkrootkit tries to executes './strings-static'; which ends up with an error saying "can't exec ./strings-static" unless chkrootkit is run in /lib/chkrootkit.

I wrote a patch but I don't know how to upload it.

You need to import the public key.

The package does install /chkrootkit/usr/share/, IOW chkrootkit/ is in the root directory.
