For the first warning:
Does your compface package provide a compface.shlibs file?
Is the version of dpkg >= 1.4.0?
For the latter two warnings:
Add a file shlibs.local into your debian/ directory and mention libm,
libXpm their (as long as you don't have a more recent version of the
file /etc/dpkg/shlibs.default and as long as the xpm package doesn't
provide its own xpm.shlibs file).
Hope that's the right answer.
