This is not an uncomplicated process, especially if you tried to get GAR to
build packages with debhelper. If GAR were to build .deb files at all (and
I'd suggest that it is a waste of time), it should build raw packages with
generated control files and a tarball of the installable files, rather than
attempting to use debhelper.

I'm not really interested in having this in GARNOME. The packages will be
shite (guaranteed - humans do a better job), I'll get lots of clueless
bugreports about them, and it will take away from the point of GARNOME ->
that it is a distribution of GNOME for *testers*.
So, "Jeffrey" seems to mean "the ineffectual, victimised guy in
American movies" in four different languages.
