To expand on this: The vendor/autoload.php file generated by Composer
loads both dependencies and the project's own code. You should instead
create and install your own autoload.php file that 1) loads the
autoload.php files shipped by each of your dependencies in Debian and
2) registers a static autoloader to load the code in your package.
phpab(1) can generate an autoloader capable of loading your packages'
classes (part 2 above).
phpabtpl(1) can generate a template for you that you can use with
phpab to also load the dependencies (part 1 above).
Several of the more recently updated PHP packages  show how to
combine these tools.
