As far as I know, there is no tool to recreate .deb file from
files installed on your disk.  But it should be possible to hack in a
few hours.

The `dpkg -get/set-selection' is great if you have a CDROM.  I
can hardly imagine a machine that doesn't have one...

The solution from Marc will probably work if you don't mind
uploading them again from the net-connected machine.  Else, I can
tell you how I _think_ .deb files could be rebuilt from files on
your system.
