If you read a little further, I did try using
$(CURDIR)/debian/$(cdbs_curpkg), but it seemed to expand to "stamp-
makefile-install" instead of "netatalk" as can be seen in this line:

  /usr/bin/make  -C .  install

I took a brief look at /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/buildvars.mk to see if
I could figure out why this was going wrong, but I think it requires
more understanding of CDBS than I have at the moment.

Taking another look at it, it looks like cdbs_curpkg is just defined
in terms of the current Make target, but when doing the make install,
that is stamp-makefile-install rather than netatalk. If you notice,
cdbs_make_curflavor has the same definition as cdbs_curpkg; I'm
assuming that they are meant to be used in different contexts, but
that DEB_DESTIR is being expanded in the wrong context here.

As I said, I've pushed the version with the hardcoded package name, we
can figure out the problem with $(cdbs_curpkg) later.
