For this kind of thing, I would generally fix the upstream Makefile, let
the Debian packaging generate a Debian diff, and notify upstream in the
hope that they'll fix it later.  You could patch the Makefile with sed in
debian/rules, but I think it's cleaner to make a real diff.  Missing
DESTDIR support is hard to fix any other way, since the DESTDIR really
needs to get added to the Makefile.
