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
looking for:

cbell@circe:~$ apt-cache show checkinstall

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.

Good luck!
