Can you paste the contents of your debian/shlibs.local?

libscan.so is either not a shared library, or a broken shared library, then.

If the former, move it out of /usr/lib and into a private directory like
/usr/lib/something. If the latter, fix it by specifying the SONAME.

The file that gets installed into /var/lib/dpkg/info/libwhateverX.shlibs,
I'd guess. Anyway, don't bother figuring out the terse lintian output, only
the verbose one, with -i.
