You may want to look into the checkinstall program. It's included in
the Debian repositories and is designed to do exactly what you're
cbell@circe:~$ apt-cache show checkinstall
Maintainer: Felipe Sateler <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.5), file, dpkg-dev
Description: installation tracker
CheckInstall keeps track of all the files created or
modified by your installation script ("make install"
"make install_modules", "setup", etc), builds a
standard binary package and installs it in your
system giving you the ability to uninstall it with your
distribution's standard package management utilities.
