I don't know of such a program, but it is easy to write a control
file, create the directory tree inside a dir and create the package
from the binaries hehehe

anyway, your problem is simple to solve... the default installation
command put on by dh_make is: 

$(MAKE) install prefix=$(CURDIR)/debian/packagename

and it should be:

$(MAKE) install prefix=$(CURDIR)/debian/packagename/usr

just change that and things will go correctly (if this is the problem,
of course)

[by the way, I shall file a wishlist against dh_make because of
that... if no one's done it already]
