You are likely to find someone here who will be sponsoring your package.
Allow me just express a few thoughts on your debianization:

- the debian/rules file contains debhelper calls that are commented
  out and be safely be removed
- there are also debhelper calls that you don't need (like
	(dh_installexamples or dh_link). You may want to read what each
	debhelper script basically does (there are good manpages for each

But what's more important. The build failed here:

# Add here commands to configure the package.
CFLAGS="-Wall -O2 -Wl,-z,defs" ./configure --host=i486-linux-gnu
--build=i486-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr --mandir=\${prefix}/share/man
configure: error: cannot find install-sh or install.sh in config
make: *** [config.status] Error 1

Could you take a look at that? If it works on your development system
please try it through "pbuilder".
