[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Building ARMEL packages, maemo 2.1 and debian directory

When I try to build ARMEL package from debian sources I get the error that
directory debian cannot be found by dpkg-packagebuilder. I applied patches
and directory debian is inside of library directory. Here is an output for
http_fetcher- 1.0.1, for example:

[sbox-SDK_ARMEL: ~/work/packages/http_fetcher-1.0.1] > dpkg-buildpackage
dpkg-buildpackage: source package is libhttpfetcher
dpkg-buildpackage: source version is 1.0.1-3
dpkg-buildpackage: source changed by Philipp Kern < pkern at debian.org>
dpkg-buildpackage: host architecture armel
 fakeroot debian/rules clean
Name "main::DEBIAN_DIR" used only once: possible typo at /usr/bin/dh_testdir
line 37.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at
/usr/bin/dh_testdir line 37.
dh_testdir: "/control" not found. Are you sure you are in the correct
make: *** [clean] Error 1

I tried to do export DEBIAN_DIR=debian but without luck.

Any suggestions how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance.
