I don't know what version of debhelper you have, or how current your CVS
is, but, above the line that does the cp'ing there is a call to
dh_installdirs. There is a debian/kdm.dirs file that will tell
dh_installdirs which dirs to create. So it is taken care of.

If you  have an old debhelper, or maybe you CVS is missing
debian/kdm.dirs, this probably won't work correctly.

Ivan designs/develops the kde CVS stuff under Sid IIRC.
