To my mind this violates modularity, in that *building* the man page
is happening during what is supposed to be just *installing* it.
I'd write either:
/somepath/create-a-man-page > debian/packagename.1
Or maybe just let "make" do its job and allow parallelism and be clear
about dependencies with
/somepath/create-a-man-page > $@
assuming the man page creation does not require some built executable.
