Good. There are some minor nuisances left, non of them critical, but I'd guess 
it would be kind of a shame to upload a simple package like that with these 
left in place:

rmdir build                                                                                                          
rmdir: failed to remove `build': No such file or directory                                                           
make: [cleanbuilddir] Error 1 (ignored)                                                                              
/usr/bin/make  -C build  -k distclean                                                                                
make: *** build: No such file or directory.  Stop.                                                                   
make: [makefile-clean] Error 2 (ignored)  

... and later:

configure: creating ./config.status                                                                                           
mv: cannot stat `Makefile.in': No such file or directory                                                                      
mv: cannot stat `Makefile.Automake.in': No such file or directory 

I didn't actually dig into them, but in my impression just using just 
debhelper + dh would be enough, e.g. simpler and sufficient, though I don't want 
to impose my personal view with these decisions.

I'd refrain from recommending which VCS to use, but in case you don't have a 
handy public place you can have a look at (for almost any kind of VCS):
