Re: creating custom binary packages?

A brief note about what I'm doing - I'm installing Debian on a couple of boxes and putting them into "kiosk mode" via Jim Massey's twm-kiosk package (http://kiosk.mozdev.org/twm-kiosk.html ).  Originally, I had wanted to wrap up my "kiosk mode" Firefox in a deb, and probably do the same for twm-kiosk, but I decided instead to use as many stock debs as possible, and only roll my changes into debs.  And I ended up writing simple Makefiles for everything, and building the debs that way.

Checkinstall doesn't really seem to be what I'm looking for.  However, I did have good luck with this article that Monsieur Pilon linked: http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/336

If your package does not require pree- or post-install steps (or if you
can do them by hand), then check out checkinstall.
