I have a need to create my own .debs for a box at work, and I'd like to
use precompiled stuff when I can. How do I create a custom .deb from a

Maintainer's Guide (though perhaps not as in depth as I ought) and I
didn't see anything there. Can anyone give me some pointers?
If your package does not require pre- or post-install steps (or if you
can do them by hand), then check out checkinstall.
