Creation of tmp directory with buildpackage
I've been trying to create my first debian package following the New
Maintainers Guide, and I've run into a problem. The guide mentions that
binaries should be installed to ./debian/tmp and then dh_movefiles will move
them as necessary to the correct destination. Unfortunately, while the
destination directories are created correctly ./debian/tmp is not, so when
the make tries to install I get "No such file or directory".
The example uses install with the -d flag, which would avoid this problem.
However I would like to avoid having to make any further changes to the build
system if that were possible, and it would seem that there should be a
debhelper that might do this.
