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").
