Is there a debian/ directory in the root of the source tree? Does it
file called rules? Is that file executable?
You can find all the answers to these questions by running the simple
ls -l debian/rules
If it isn't there, then either you have done something wrong, or the
who sent you the files has. If it is not executable, make it executable
(chmod a+x debian/rules) and try again.
