To build a package from source, chdir into the package source directory
and run "debuild -b".  (debuild is from the devscripts package, the -b
means binary only.)  Don't worry when it gives you an error about
not being able to sign the package, that doesn't matter.

You'll have to undo the other changes you made, i.e. move the "DEBIAN"
directory back to "debian" and put that blank line back in the control
file, or better still start again!
