[maemo-developers] dpkg: serious warning: files list .......

Hi, I succeeded in building my first .deb package.
I created the control file and friends manually, I looked at the source of maemopadplus for "inspiration".

Using the "Application manager" the package installs and uninstalls without any problems.
But when I use dpkg I get the following message:

dpkg -i n770-fire_0.1_armel.deb 
Selecting previously deselected package n770-fire.
(Reading database ... 
dpkg: serious warning: files list file for package `armel' missing, assuming package has no files currently installed.
12900 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking n770-fire (from n770-fire_0.1_armel.deb) ...
Setting up n770-fire (0.1) ...

"dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" creates a debian/files file containing:
n770-fire_1.2_armel.deb user/games optional

I was wondering if anyone knows which newbie mistake I made?
