Linda was a [great] tool similar to lintian, written by Steve Kowalik. It was removed from the archive on March 2008 (bug 469039), thus it is not available in Lenny and later.

You should use lintian instead, since it includes most, if not all, the checks that linda used to perform.

The package description was :

Linda's first release was linda-0.0.1 on Mon, 25 Mar 2002. The last release was linda-0.3.26 on Sat, 16 Jun 2007.
