debian/control's Build-Depends could be narrowed down to:
debhelper (>= 4.0.0), autotools-dev, libboost-dev, libboost-regex-dev, 
libgtkmm-2.4-dev, libsigc++-2.0-dev

I would add also:

- file an ITP bug as described at http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/
- close the ITP from debian/changelog, that is put the correct bug number in
	* Initial release Closes: #nnnn  (nnnn is the bug number of your ITP)
- debian/control 
	Section: text
- Go further by running lintian -i and linda -i over your .deb to spot more 
issues to fix ;-)
- test the final package building it inside a pbuilder environment.
