the standard way to is tweak the existing configs founf in /etc/.  If a easy 
to update config file can not be found, perhaps you should request one from 
the package maintainer?  Any assistance in making Debian easier for the next 
person is definately welcomed.

If you truly need something like a rc.local, just make something like 
/etc/init.d/my_local, set it to chmod +x, and symlink it into the appropriate 
runlevel (usually 3).  There is also update-rc.d to assist with the 
symlinking (it is somewhat like RH's chkconfig).
