I have an automated solution in place and working for fetchmail. Check the
autogen.sh and debian/rules scripts.
DO keep in mind that it works in MY building environment, which is tailored
for the use of cvs-buildpackage, so I always have a source tree that is sane
(with no outdated crap from upstream's RH machine) to compare with the
tar-unpacked one to generate the "files to be removed" diff.
Also pay special attention to the logic in autogen.sh to find and unpack
(yes, I know I could write a better version that uses tar -t instead of
unpacking. Will do someday if I get too bored) the upstream's tarball.
