The package descriptions are not phrased properly; please consult Developer's Reference §6.2 for details. You could also ask debian-l10n-english@ for reviewing them.
License text in machine-readable copyright file should be indented by exactly one space. (More that one is not syntactically wrong, but it's likely not what you meant; see Policy §5.6.13 for details.)
The copyright file doesn't seem to be complete. The source contains at least these copyright notices that haven't been included there:
Copyright 2000, Maurice Aubrey
Copyright 2003, North Carolina State Highway Patrol
What are configure and configure-stamp in your debian/rules for? They don't seem to do anything useful.
You build(-arch) target don't do anything; you build the code in binary(-arch) instead. While this works, stuff that doesn't require (pseudo-)root privileges really belongs in build(-arch).
cd php5 ; phpize5 --clean ; cd ..
should be rewritten as:
cd php5 && phpize5 --clean
(see Policy §4.6; also, you don't need to cd back)
cd postgresql; make clean ; cd ..
should be rewritten as:
$(MAKE) -C postgresql
What is python-dev build-dependecy for? You don't seem to build the Python extensions...
What are autoconf and autotools-dev build-dependencies for? As far as I can see, this packages doesn't use autotools...
I'm pretty sure .mynotes and .dput.conf files shouldn't be included in the tarball. :)
The changelog is formatted in a strange way. It's usual to put blank lines after each package "title" and before each "trailer"; see e.g. how coreutils changelog is formatted:
You should not close the RFS bug in the changelog; it's supposed to be closed by your sponsor.
