Re: shlibs and lintian
What do you mean the libraries are broken ?
I can install the package and everything runs ok . But I do not like these
something can cause a trouble I do not see

The above seems to indicate that the problem is the shared libraries are
broken. The Lintian tags that you're getting imply that the SONAME of
this library is just "libvae.so" without any version, not "libvae.so.2"
like it should be. Such libraries without SONAMEs can't be represented in
shlibs, which is causing both of the errors that you're getting.
