I have not taken a look, but if your intention is to build debian
packages, better use the right tools: build a correct source package
first and then compile that. This is the only way packages can
eventually be added to debian or on a shorter term to a ppa.

You will find an example here:

On debian/ubuntu you could get the source by using
dget https://launchpad.net/~johanvdw/+archive/mapguide/+files/fdosvn_3.8.0~6959-1ubuntu1.dsc

Alternatively, you can download the file
and extract it in your code tree. Than run debuild -b to build a
binary file or debuild -S to build a source package

Note that the file still contains a lot of example files (with a .ex
extension). Ignore these and look to the files which really matter:
debian/control and debian/rules

While debugging you may want to use fakeroot debian/rules binary
