Gosh,  yes.  At the moment those docs are so convoluted and contain so
many references to other projects which don't exist that they're difficult
to use effectively;  I guess that this is due to the 0.1 version status of
most of them (NOTE TO DEBIAN DOC TEAM:  I'm not criticising here.  I
*understand* how difficult it is ...).

I'd reccomend the "Makeing a debian Package" page,  which is pretty good
for small/single packages.  It sure did help me understand the basics.  If
you're compiling some humungous multi-package beast (;cough Xwindows) it's
probably not your first package.  Anyway,  you can find the above page via
the debian doc page or at
