Re: Need help with .deb packaging...

Thanks once again Russ…

I will notify the upstream.

Just modified two lines in Makefile.in and it worked… At least I think it worked: 

Finished running lintian. And it appears to be installed correctly :)

Thanks Russ,

But there's a "Debian Recommended Way" to fix using the files in the
/debian folder or I must change the makefile manually?

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.
