Sorry, I didn't phrase that very clearly. I was wondering how you
generate the ".deb" file - do you first generate an RPM and then use a
converter (e.g. alien) to create a deb from the rpm? Or do you create
the .deb directly from the source code (using a debian/rules files etc).

I asked because Debian packages are built from the source code. It
sounds to me now as though you make use of "alien".
