There's your binary. It looks like the Makefile doesn't use DESTDIR,
so you have two solutions:

- Modify the Makefile to use DESTDIR. (not recommended. It's better to
leave the original sources as "pristine" as possible)
- install the file "by hand". In this case it can be done by changing
the "make install DESTDIR=`pwd`/debian/tmp" line in your debian/rules
to "install -m 755 mlddc `pwd`/debian/tmp"
