I get following report from lintian -iIE --pedantic (version 2.2.14,
build on jaunty): 
P: xiphos: copyright-refers-to-symlink-license usr/share/common-licenses/GFDL
W: xiphos: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/bin/xiphos /usr/lib
W: xiphos: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath ./usr/bin/xiphos /lib
P: xiphos-data: copyright-refers-to-symlink-license usr/share/common-licenses/GFDL
P: gnomesword: copyright-refers-to-symlink-license usr/share/common-licenses/GFDL

My changes are not huge. The problem is the 2.3 MiB big auto-generated
patch. Attached the diff with this patch trimmed down. Then the changes
are only 60 lines long.
