I am sometimes wondering what is the best approach for packages with no
b) Write a Makefile, submit it to Upstream, and ship it in the debian
directory in the meantime. (as a patch ? as a file to be moved in at
the begining of the install rule in debian/rules ?).
The advantage of b) is that it then contributes to trivialise the
packaging rules, especially if it is incorporated upstream.
