Howdy folks,

I quoth the lintian user manual::

    In some cases, the checked package does not have a bug or does not
   violate policy, but Lintian still reports an error or warning. This
   can have the following reasons:

     * Lintian has a bug itself,
     * a specific Lintian check is not smart enough to know about a
       special case allowed by policy, or
     * the policy does allow exceptions to some rule in general.

  (only in the last 2 cases may you override)

The things you've overriden are not bugs, not a special case, or not
a general exception :)

Please remove the overrides, they're quite valid, from what I can
gather (zlib *is* embedded (btw, have you notified the security team? :) ),
and your binaries don't have manpages)
