You should include the authors explicitly in ./debian/copyright,
rather than referring to AUTHORS.

And you might consider debhelper>>5 and echo 5>./debian/compat,
although that will discourage people from backporting your package to

build-stamp and configure-stamp should probably 'touch $@', which is
more elegant than repeating the name of the rule.

Why do you have this conditional?
+	if test -d samples; then \
+		dh_installexamples samples/*; \
+	fi

It seems to me that if samples exist, then you shouldn't need the
test, and if it does not exist, then you should remove it anyway.

The package looks good; you have my metaphorical blessing and
best-wishes for sponsorship :)

Clear skies,
