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: 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):
