Use tar.gz upstream tarballs. You shouldn't have problems with Debian

That's the problem, there are no upstream tarballs hence I need to come with
the code.

I wonder, maybe this is even better?
You can create directories and subdirectories and tar.gz'em all.

%__install -m 644 icons/$D/inkomstenbelasting.png
Create debian.PACKAGENAME.install file if those are provided by upstream.

What will this do?

dh_install command installs all files which are listed in
PACKAGENAME.install file.
So, all you have to do, is to add dh_install to rules file.
*If* you want to use .install routines.

In rules file (it's only Makefile anyway):


in debian.PACKAGENAME.install:


Or you can just copy all files in `debian/rules install`.
Take a look how PHP (and extensions) packages are built for example.
