from "man dpkg-buildpackage"

  The list of generated files which are part of the  upload  being
  prepared.  dpkg-gencontrol adds the presumed filenames of binary
  packages whose control files it generates here; dpkg-distaddfile
  can  be used to add additional files.  dpkg-genchanges reads the
  data here when producing a .changes file.

       dpkg-distaddfile does not take any non-common options. It takes
three non-option arguments, the filename and the section and priority
for the .changes file.

       The filename should be specified relative to the directory where
dpkg-genchanges will expect to find the files, usually .., rather than
being a pathname relative to the current directory when dpkg-distaddfile
is run.

Still not quite sure what dpkg-buildpackage would like me to add to the files list.
Or when in the rules(makefile) to add them.
