First, I tried DEB_DESTDIR:=debian/tmp. This results in a libtool
error message "libtool: install: debian/tmp/usr/lib' must be an
absolute directory name". Next, I tried
DEB_DESTDIR:=$(pwd)/debian/tmp, which resulted in trying to install
the compiled binary to /debian/tmp, of course with EPERM. Writing the
full path resulted in the already-known binary-less package.
$(pwd)/debian/tmp expands to /debian/tmp

That one results in
|dh_install -pksynaptics
|cp: cannot copy a directory, `./debian', into itself, `debian/ksynaptics/debian/tmp/debian'
