I would just put those into the debian/rules. There is not enough there

Since there is no Makefile, you will need to explicitly replace the
$(MAKE) with the gcc or cc command with the options you want. In the
"install" section, again, you will need to replace the $(MAKE) install
with individual install commands to put the libraries where they are
supposed to go.
BTW, a library package may not be the best thing to learn packaging. A
package which produces a single executable is much easier.
