Actaully, if the Debian folder is going to be integrated into the CVS,
you don't need to use a 'make deb' instruction, but just a "normal"

OTOH, if CVS sources can produce Debian native packages (which means
that they have a debian/ folder), you can use other Debian tools like
'cvs-buildpackage' ('apt-cache show cvs-buildpackage' or [1]).

Thx, bye,

PS, Sean, if you still need help to make your package enter Debian,
please contact me in private, I'm in the process of being sponsored
for another package (cl-s-xml [2]), so I can give you some hints ;-)
