Let's start it from scratch. I managed to build a debian package, here
is what you have to do:
* create a fresh cvs snapshot
* cd gnokii
* mv packaging/Debian debian
* removing dh_installchangelogs lines from debian/rules
* run, you can stop it when configure starts to run (look
  into the script first to see everything is installed (e.g. gettextize,
  libtoolize, ...). It generates some important files, e.g. configure
* you can run fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage

Yes, /usr/lib/gnokii/gnokii will be the real binary.
