Would that library browser tolerate a symlink?
I do the following with Sugar packages:
# Replace superfluous COPYING files with symlinks
! test -f $(DEB_DESTDIR)/usr/share/sugar/activities/*.activity/COPYING \
|| ! diff -q /usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-2 $(DEB_DESTDIR)/usr/share/sugar/activities/*.activity/COPYING \
|| ln -sfT ../../../common-licenses/GPL-2 $(DEB_DESTDIR)/usr/share/sugar/activities/*.activity/COPYING
Above, coupled with actually shipping full license in upstream tarball,
should cause the file to be replaced with a symlink.
Hope that helps.
