Hi Dave,
Cool documentation ! It helped me in revising all my basics. I am sure, it will serve a great purpose for a maemo newbie developer.

Few suggestions :-
1. Adding a GTK based example with dependencies specified in configure.ac (PKG_CHECK_MODULES for gtk flags), debian/control (Depends,Build-depends) would be useful
2. What changes are required for deb packaging a QT program.

P.S : I have suggested this as you also mentioned about desktop files.

So I included an A to Z for this project, with the 3 files you need to
create a .tar.gz using standard autotools. Let me know if it's useful.
