installing dpkg

Hi all,

I'd like to know
what to install additionally with dpkg packages
in order to use the dpkg (e.g. # dpkg -i xxx.deb) properly.

I installed dpkg to non-debian from source code,
and ran

# dpkg -i xxx_arm.deb

I got the following error:

dpkg: failed to open package info file `/usr/local/var/dpkg/status' for reading: No such file or directory

There is currently no packaging tool like apt in the system.
I installed dpkg from source codes and it's not debian nor any distro.

Distro : N/A
Installing dpkg_1.13.25.tar.gz from http://packages.debian.org/etch/dpkg

Please advise me, anyone who's ever ported debian to ARM linux.
