Use dpkg-scan{packages,sources} from dpkg-dev.

For example, I have my Packages in subdirectories unter /var/ww/debian:


cd /var/www/


dpkg-scanpackages $BASE /dev/null / > $BASE/Packages
dpkg-scansources $BASE /dev/null / > $BASE/Sources

cd $BASE
gzip < Packages > Packages.gz
gzip < Sources > Sources.gz
