Milosz, I don't whether you got my message, it would be great if you
could send me an email address where you are reachable without a
So here is my reply again...
I don't exactly follow what this script has to do with the originally
reported bug, but I guess that setting the PREFIX property somehow
didn't bring the expected results for building a debian package.
Better than to set a hardcoded PREFIX, which only mixes up the real
PREFIX, would be to use '#' to denote the build root, e.g.:
DEBFILES = [
Also I think that we would need a build alias in SConstruct
debian_package = SConscript('debian/SConscript')
I'll try to find a better way of specifying the files for the package.
Otherwise I incorporate the debian packaging script into the project,
thanks for your work!
