You missed "use the X11" rather than "use X11".

iconv isn't in libc6 on all architectures:


I think you can just drop the build-dep on libc6 because the right C
library will always be present.

You should run dh_icons too.

I'd suggest these minor fixes for the DESCRIPTION:

       txiterm is a wrapper around the xiterm+thai(1) program that
invokes the latter program with
       Thai support and also loads the Thai font.

       All arguments to txiterm are passed to xiterm+thai without processing;
       the -fn option should not be specified because it is used by the wrapper.

       See the xiterm+thai manual page for more information on

       Note: txiterm needs nectec18 - an X Thai font from the
xfonts-thai-nectec package
       to allow the program to render the proper Thai text in the terminal.
