I suspect it is to late to try to get LSB compilance into Woody.

I suggest you work with the openi18n group to get these patches into
the upstream version, and when this is fixed you file a "new version
available" bug into BTS asking the maintainer to upgrade to a version
with full LSB support.  If upstream is missing, unwilling or very
slow, you should consider trying to get the patch only into Debian.
