What do you mean under "orig.tar archive"? Archive from project owner ?
It does not exist. There is only svn repo. But ok, I'll document "what and
why" I remove or move.

Right now I have sh-script which automate all this routine(i mean create
from original sources  debian tree), but I do not know how I can include it.
And this script is present in original svn-repo:
But I have some doubts about repacking. Currentrly I rebuild all tree for
debian project. But original project have entirely different structure.
(You can see it here: http://trac.rtmpd.com/browser/trunk)
The main reason for this step was "too many unnecessary in builders dir and
several not needed dirs", so I create source tree for deb package in 
"traditional cmake style". So I need advice on this issue.

Ok, I'll do this. Also I remove quilt from deps.

Mostly lualib is needed to build embeded version of crtmpserver(not in
debian environment). I do not see any reason to keep lualib sourses in
project tree.
