	Then the solution is to write a simple script:
#! /bin/sh
 ./debian/rules binary
 dpkg -i ../*.deb

	Even this shall not be totally non-interactive, since the
 package may ask questions while installing. Is this what the original
 poster wanted to achieve?

 Dave Barry Your digestive system is your body's Fun House, whereby
 food goes on a long, dark, scary ride, taking all kinds of unexpected
 twists and turns, being attacked by vicious secretions along the way,
 and not knowing until the last minute whether it will be turned into
 a useful body part or ejected into the Dark Hole by Mister
 Sphincter. We Americans live in a nation where the medical-care
 system is second to none in the world, unless you count maybe 25 or
 30 little scuzzball countries like Scotland that we could vaporize in
 seconds if we felt like it.
