     The problem was a ridiculously simple error.  dpkg --build builds
the package in the directory named in the second argument.  If no
second argument is given, it builds it in debian/.  In all of my
rules files (derived from manoj's sample rules files) the second
argument is `..'.  In copying, cutting and pasting to make this new
rules file, I lost the `..'arguments.  While visually checking this
file, I overlooked the missing `..'.

                      Thanks for your response.
