Troll. Read *all* of my message - my suggestion is to rename debian/
to deb/ and then create a symlink in ./configure.

debian/ dirs in upstream packages are not nice if the Debian packager
wants to remove any of the upstream files in debian/: This is only
possible with "rm" commands in debian/rules.
