It's quite stunning just how involved it is, compared to RPM. But, I did
manage to make myself a package, after only two hours!
However, when I had to make a change to the Makefile.in, and rebuild the
package, I was lost. I guessed, and re-ran "config.status" at the top
leve, then ran "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot". It all seemed to work, but
no errors or a .deb file came out.
Any ideas what to do ?
