As far as I understand, Giorgio's concerns were that a plain "make
install" strips the debug information from the binaries installed.

However, I can't confirm this:
$ file debian/peless/usr/bin/peless 
debian/peless/usr/bin/peless: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64,
version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.1, dynamically linked (uses shared
libs), not stripped

(this is after changing debian/rules to use "make install" and break
right after it)

So, Giorgio, it seems perfectly safe to use "make install", no?
