In the file debian/copyright you properly include some File sections 
with a License hint.  And you properly a License section with the 
details of the GPL-2+ hint.

One File section, however, use the License hint "LGPL v2.1+".

One (minor) issue it that this hint should preferrably use the standard 
name "LGPL-2.1+".

Another more important issue is that this hint must have a corresponding 
License section containing the actual licensing text (similar to the 
GPL-2+ one).

Hope this helps,

  - Jonas
