mmmh, I think you mean LVM and not LVS (wouldn't make sense to shorten M
to S)

But anyway lvs seems to be already packaged:
apt-cache show lvs

Package: lvs

Description: Linux Virtual Server kernel patches and support programs
 Virtual server is a highly scalable and highly available server built
 on a cluster of real servers. The architecture of the cluster is
 transparent to end users, and the users see only a single virtual
 This package provides the kernel patches and some support programs
 necessary to implement a virtual server under Linux. With the addition
 of the mon and heartbeat packages it is possible to implement a complete
 high-availability solution for Linux.
 This package includes: kernel patches for 2.2.13 and 2.2.14 (0.9.7) and
 the ipvsadm program (0.9.7.)

So packaging that wouldn't make sense, I'd suggest that you contact the
maintainer of lvs so that you could probably work together on that thing.

kind regards,
