[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Problems packaging a shared library

I'm struggling trying to make a .deb package out of libupnp
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/upnp/). It compiles nicely in the
scratchbox ARM target, but when I try to make a package out of it with
dpkg-buildpackage the package contains basically only the directories.

Here's what I've done...

1) run dh_make and select the library option
2) edit the debian/control file
3) run dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

The debian/tmp directory then contains the compiled library and dev
files, but the created .deb package does not contain those.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? libupnp installs nicely with
"./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install" so I think that,
e.g., the debian/rules file wouldn't need anything special. Am I
