Shouldn't be too hard, just adjust the all/debian/generate-license-file
by cat-ing the end result onto copyright.

AFAIR eulervm 3.0 had the problem of missing/wrong copyright, but not
there is eulervm 4 inclouded which ships with proper copyright notice.
So it might be that you had the same problem in teTeX I had last year
with TL2005:

  an entry for eulervm in the description of texlive-fonts-extra?
(which in fact can be deleted ;-)
