Makeing .deb's is VERY simple. Too bad dpkg-deb doesnt have a
manual page. Basically, to get an idea of what you have to do, use
dpkg-deb -x to undo a random .deb into a temporary directory, then use
dpkg-deb -e to extract the control information. Take a look at the
control file. To sum it all you, you want to create a mini-dir heirarchy
with a debian control file in it, then use dpkg-deb -b to create it, then
you can just use dpkg -i to install it and you will hvae a database of
everything. Hope this help's ya some..
