This is not really a debian-arm question --- more a debian-user question.
Here is the answer anyway. Quoting from the "man adduser" manpage:

	If the file /usr/local/sbin/adduser.local exists, it will be executed
	after the user account has been set up in order to do any local
	setup. The arguments passed to adduser.local are:

		username uid gid home-directory

So you can just write a shell script to create the directory and put
it in as /usr/local/bin/adduser.local (probably with execute permissions).
