so here i am.
I think it would be nice if the package-building tools would
place files in $DEB_BUILD_DIR if it is set. If it isn't, they
will continue their current behavior of dropping them in the
I know nothing about the internals of these programs, but it
seems like a fairly simple change. I would be willing to
volunteer some time for this, if necessary.
