I found more information here in the meantime:
Quoting this web page:
Old versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License
* GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1
This license used to be called the GNU Library General Public License:
* GNU LIbrary General Public License, version 2.0

I found out in the meantime that there are multiple packages which use
this license e.g. "glib2", "pango" or "atk". The "atk" packagae doesn't
define a license, the other two packages use "gnu-lgpl-v2". Based on
the above information from "www.gnu.org" I think this is correct.
