there is some info on on the developper corner at the debian web site, but you
should install the debhelper package and also the dh-make package, as well as
some other (don't install debmake, it is obsolete, i think ...)
then you should do a dh-make with the correct options, don't remember exactly,
but it should be in the docs, and if you are lucky, it will get debianized
automatically. this is the case with most autoconf/automake packages, and the
one that follow the gnu style. If not you have to fix things so that they work.
After that you have to build the package with dpkg-buildpackage (-us -uc since
you are not maintainer) since dbuild needs a .dsc file.
