renderd gets built and installed as part of the upstream buildsystem, so
it should be included in the package. renderd is also provided by its
own binary package.

The libapache2-mod-tile package currently has both as a dependency:

 renderd | tirex-master

To allow it to be installed with either package. The tirex package name
likely needs to be changed to match your tirex packaging.

tirex should be its own repo, splitting out renderd doesn't make sense.
