You're still shipping /usr/sbin which you probably don't use.  You
should check the contents of the .deb with 

  dpkg-deb -c ../...deb

or if it is installed

  dpkg -L foo

+	-$(PY23) setup.py clean
+	-$(PY24) setup.py clean

This is bad for reasons documented by Branden's lintian bug ("careless
use of make clean").
