Yes. In fact, I've used qmail before there was a .deb - the solution
then was to use the equivs package. It's ugly but it works. Another
solution would be to build a .deb on your own; when you're building a
local .deb, you don't have to follow the Debian Policy so the
packaging becomes quite easy¹ :-)
¹ But don't publish such a .deb :-)
