Welcome to NetBSD and its ELF implementation :)

Yeah, adjust the rpaths. Check this out:

Don't ask me about the reloc(ation) type's meaning, but symnum I suppose
is symbol number. Basically it cannot load symbols (variables, functions ..)
from a shared library. In your place, it cannot successfully load the libraries
the library itself (i.e. volume.so) is depending on. The above links should
help you to sort that out.

The above pointers plus maybe a man gcc or ld and you'll be fine :)
