I didn't have time to have a look into details, so I stopped when I saw that
lintian was complaining and that the list of files contained by the package
did not look as usual. I must admit that I didn't try to install the package.

So if only lintian is concerned, this is not a problem anymore (provided
that lintian is fixed but it's apparently already done).
