Either the first or the second solution, methinks. The second seems to
be more clean to me (you can put the header into the Debian diff, so
the divergence from upstream is rather minimal, and separated).

You can also put some logic in debian/rules to update the header if a
more recent one is installed by wordnet-dev (a'la the
config.guess/config.sub update stuff).
