PREFIX is set earlier in that script:

PREFIX=`grep Package: debian/control.module | cut -d' ' -f 2 | cut -d\# -f 1`

The problem is that it's not called control.module.  It's called
control.template.  Whoops.

Fixed in Subversion for nvidia-graphics-drivers and will be fixed in the
next upload.  Sorry about that.  The fix will need to be replicated to the
other legacy drivers packages as well.
