You're using a debhelper version that doesn't want things installed at
debian/tmp, but at debian/packagename. That's all. Anyway, your Makefile
doesn't make much sense. The "clean" target is doing the job of an
"uninstall" target.

Please, refer to debian-mentors@lists.debian.org. That list is there to
help prospective maintainers.
