deb-make creates rules files that use debstd, which doesn't offer much
control over what it does (not to mention that it sometimes violates
policy). I recommend debhelper instead, there is a 'dh-make' package in
experimental (may be still stuck in incoming) which works nearly the same
as deb-make except it uses debhelper in its rules files. build is fine,
it's merely a wrapper around dpkg-buildpackage.
