Fixing the FSF address is something lintian complains about. Debian Policy, however, mandates copying licensing info _verbatim_.
Both is satisfied if treating where to get a copy of the license not as a part of the license itself but rather an add-on note: Strip it from the "verbatim" copying of license, and readd it in the Debian-specific comment.
Oh, and double-check if the source talks about "Lesser" GPL or "Library" GPL: There is no such thing as "GNU Lesser Public License" version 2, as the term "Lesser" was introduced with version 2.1!
While at it, I suggest replace the note with this newest one used by FSF, referring to their web address instead:
You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.And while at it, leading X- in custom fields is discouraged. I suggest using License-Comment: instead.
So all in all, it might (depending on the Lesse/Library mess) end up with something like this:
License-Comment: You should have received a copy of the GNU Library General Public License along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>. . On Debian systems, the complete text of the GNU Library General Public License can be found in `/usr/share/common-licenses/LGPL-2'.
