Please ask on debian-mentors, it's made for people who learn packaging.

You need a _package_ libgtk-directfb-2.0 and not just a manually installed

This library is packaged as libgtk-directfb-2.0-0 (note the -0 at the end
that you don't have) in Debian.  Furthermore, dependencies on libraries
are automatically generated and thus you shouldn't hardcode the name of a
library in the Depends line (but rather put ${shlibs:Depends}).
