Done (I think).

Regarding the lintian errors, I get different results from Paul. Even
running lintian with -X -E --pedantic (on the changes file) I see no tags
and manual checking the packages (where possible, for example for the 
missing upstream changelog file) I don't see any problem. 
Maybe you can illuminate me.

I noticed that too, but when I asked to the upstream author if I can safely 
remove them he said that all the bundled libraries have been modified
by him in a way or another and the software probably wouldn't build/work. I
didn't investigate further.

I uploaded the corrected version on Debian Mentors.
