This is done.

The name of the library is terralib, then I think that libterra doesn't
sound good. And as the new policy is to use lib before every library
package, I think this is the better solution. There are a lot of
packages in Debian with 2 libs in the name:

$ apt-cache search lib | grep lib[a-z]*lib

I sent a mail for the the terralib author asking about that, and I'm
packaging it without these unknown license docs. If he answers me, I
change it.
