By coincidence, I came up against this today!
`make install DESTDIR=`pwd`/debian/packagename` installed everything in
one tree, and I had to move ome files over tothe -dev package.
I eneded up doing it by hand since dh_install didn't move but only copy.
So count this as a vote for the ability to move! :-)
