try this, what I did:

I built the packages as normal. (ati.........run --buildpkg Debian/sid)

Then I used the midgnight commander to look into the packags and copied all 
the files manaully into the right position (fglrx-driver).

Then I built the kernel-module with make-kpkg and installed ist manually on 
the same way.

To test it, I moved /etc/init.d/kdm out of the way, to avoid its start at 

O.k., so far so good. Now I oaded the fglrx kernel-module with modconf.

It loaded fine.

After this I stopped kdm and from the consol I started X using startx. So I 
could see errors, but everything went fine.

After this, I copied kdm back, and installed the packages fglrx-driver and the 
built kernel-module ith dpkg -i, to let them known in the database.

Yes, it is a dirty way, but also this is a dirty driver !

I hope, this helps. And do not laugh: This worked for me.

You can check it with fglrxinfo in X.

fgl_glgears will not work. glxgears does work, but you will get no
results shown.

Good luck !
