The update-rc.d has to be executed in the postinst of the
package. If you're using debhelper those scripts should be
generated automatically for you. Just look in the files
debian/rcf/DEBIAN/postinst and .../postrm, which should include
the call to update-rc.d.
Please don't put it in the debian/rules file, as update-rc.d must
be executed on _installation_, not on building the package.
