You should read the Library Packaging Guide [0], and send you comments
to the author.  People would like to see this become (or be integrated
into) the official documentation, but the language is sometimes

Multiple binary packages are just a matter of putting multiple
Packages: lines in debian/control, and putting the files in the proper
heirarchy ./debian/package-name/.

apt-get -b source will always work; or use debian/rules binary, or
dpkg-buildpackage, or debuild, etc.
