I figured out how to do this for a package not in debian. If using debhelper,

http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2003/debian-devel-200307/ msg00630.html

may help you.

As an aside, I don't think substvars is well suited to this purpose (for example, you need to use ${Newline} to format a description properly), and I'd prefer if those who don't use it didn't recommend using it.
