I just checked the binary package:

 o /usr/doc should be /usr/share/doc

 o There is a lyx-1.4.3-1.README in the source package, but it's named
   lyx1.4.3-1.README in the binary package. I would rename that to be
   consistent with the rest of the packages.


Building from source is fine. GTG if you fix the above packaging errors.


Ciao
