The libLAS package in Debian unstable was fixed with the upload of
liblas 1.7.0+dfsg-3. The SONAME fix is in git at:


I suggest you rebuild the binary package using the latest source from
the Debian GIS git repository.

Upload the recent changes to Debian unstable will result in FTBFS until
#739807 affecting the boost package is fixed. I'm waiting for boost to
get fixed before preparing a new build for Debian.


Kind Regards,
