If your debian/control contains more than one package, then the installation 
directory is automatically set to debian/tmp.  You should add a file 
debian/ksynaptics.install that puts the files in the right place, or override 
DEB_DESTDIR.  I realize that this doesn't make much sense, but the 
installation directory choice predates the debug package support, so we can't 
change that without breaking stuff.
