Here are a few links:
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Debian-Binary-Package-Building-HOWTO/
http://www-jcsu.jesus.cam.ac.uk/jcn/documentation/html-only/packaging.html
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-debpkg.html

You can also use checkinstall altough i don't think it will help when
using a script. (it needs a make file)
