Check the source directory on a Debian CD/FTP. Grab the -orig tarball and
the -diff.

Unpck the source, apply the .diff, and that's the ./debian directory with
all the rulesets you're looking for.

Be cautioned, you're gonna have to read that patch line by line; many apps
are patched to meet the LSB, and the build process depends on those patches
having been implemented.
