What kind of variables? What do you want to do? package_name.install etc. are 
simply read by dh_install etc. and doesn't have anything directly to do with 
debian/rules, besides the fact that dh_install etc. are usually run from 
there. Commonly when you have a multi-binary source package you set 
DESTDIR=$(CURDIR)/debian/tmp and let "make install" install everything there. 
Then you just use dh_install to separate the files into the right packages.
