A basic question about packaging a cabalized program

Hello list,

For several days I have been struggling with a seemingly easy problem. I'm trying to build a deb package out of my cabalized haskell program.

I found a cabal-debian program on hackage and generated a 'debian' directory for my package. But when I run dpkg-buildpackage, I get an empty deb as a result.

I'm new to debian packaging so I can't diagnose, what's exactly going wrong. But seems to me part of problem is in cabal not installing files into DESTDIR.

Can someone point me on some easy examples of sources of deb packages of haskell software? Is where any actual tutorial on packaging haskell for debian available online? I googled some, but they all seem to be hopelessly outdated.
