This is not the right way to build a debian package, it is a dirty hack.
All the files that are necessary for building a debian package are
already there if you check xine-lib-1.2 out using 'hg clone
With 'debuild -uc -us -rfakeroot' in the xine-lib-1.2
directory, the xline-lib gets compiled and you have debian packages
afterwords one directory up. At least this is the way
I build my ubuntu packages for xine-lib with vdpau patches.
