debian/copyright is the file which should contain all license
information. So add the related information (which part of the package
is affected, under which license this part is released, the short
license and a link to /usr/share/common-licenses/LGPL) to
debian/copyright and remove license.txt from the resulting binary
package, but not from the source.
