Totally forgot to mention why debian/tmp is not used in d/rules:
Originally I tried to use that directory, but it seems like it is
cleaned quite often between the various targets dh calls. Since the
contents that gets prepared in that directory need to persist over
almost the whole processing of d/rules, I simply switched to an other
directory (debian/build), which gets not cleaned automatically.

It took me much longer than I expected, but I finally managed to add all
the components to d/control.
It would be great if anyone could take a look onto the short and long
descriptions in d/control, with regards to their content as well as
spelling and diction. Especially the latter is quite hard for me, since
English is not my native language. The current packaging can be found

Next I'll try to add the bridges, that are shipped with upstream's
source. Hopefully this will not take me another two weeks...
