No, it's debhelper... Look into the debian/control file at the Build-Depends.
debhelper, xlib6g-dev (Please, note the g in xlib6g!) and build-essentials
it's all you need (and I strongly recommends fakeroot also).

Also, be sure to start from 5.9.3-2. I made a 5.9.6-1 here but a problem with
my gpg/pgp key avoid me to upload it... I can send you the diff however.

Which commandline are you using... personnally,
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot always work for me.

control and rules file are needed but are available for anyone interested
by using apt-get source kdrill... BTW, you can always CC me if you have some
other questions about your/my package... I'm still the best to answer you
since I maintain it for almost 2 years ;)

I'm currently compiled it again to check if everything still work since my
last update (5.9.3-2) but everything should go right.
