There's several problems with your package:

* Do not hardcode the Depends for shared libraries, use a substvar.
* Why are you using a Pre-Depends?

* You should move the contents of the binary target to binary-arch, and
  make binary depend on binary-arch and binary-indep.
* You could use a n770-fire.install file istead of the install calls in

* This package will not build when provided as a source package as it's
  not self contained, you are ascending two dirs up the hierarchy,
  outside of what's provided in it.
