Perfect, let's fix it. :)

I will be changing.

My first question: This "surgescript"[1] package is in Debian in an earlier version (0.5.4-1). Isn't
it a problem to leave just that line?

I can make a patch to correct the path of this library. Can you tell me which way is right for this
And I am sending our conversation with copies to the upstream (Alexandre Martins) of this software
to make future improvements.

I'm adding this dependency in d/control.

Wonderful! If it is not a problem for you, but you can change the icon added in the "opensurge" to
this icon found in the software.[2]
