All should point to the original shared lib:

/usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/

But this should be handled by any sane build system anyway.

IMHO lintian warnings from manpages are not too critical. If you want 
to fix them, please consider patching the manpages at build time.

If there are no manpages for the executable binaries, well, please 
write some. ;) I have learnt writing manpages by copy-and-paste'ing 
from other manpages.

WTF? Don't you use debhelper? If yes, you shouldn't really have to 
care about this yourself...
