I guess upstream primarily uses Windows/etc. Would it be possible to

Hmm. Looking at the debhelper code, it adds this to the command-line
for dh_auto_configure: -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
If that is the wrong way to get cmake to install to /usr then it would
be great if you could file a bug to get this fixed. Also put a comment
in debian/rules saying that this is a workaround, citing the bug URL.

Sounds reasonable. The fact that it uses FLTK is not relevant for the
short description, so just (GUI) should do it.
