Thank you for your comments. I'm discussing things with Jon Dowland from the
games team (on debian-devel-games) and I misunderstood him at first. This lead to the
creation of this ugly installer-package.
I've now replaced it with a zdoom scource package that includes the binary lib from fmod.

Not very nice but ok for the fmod people and ok for the non-free archive (according
to Jon).

Thanks again for your help!
