Thanks a lot for the code snip, NN_il_Confusionario. It explains well why
there isn't such a tool to create .deb from a directory. 

I have a second thought, since checkinstall accept any install command,
can I do 

  checkinstall rsync -vua . /

from the directory that I prepared to create a .deb file?
