True, let me fix that. Basically, modass/include/generic.mk does 
something like:

KSRC = /usr/src/linux

which stomps on cdbs's DEB_DESTDIR. As a consequence, cdbs executes:

/usr/bin/make  -C build-tree/linux-gpib-3.2.11  install DESTDIR=/usr/src/linux/..

which obviously won't succeed.

>Suggestions of how to solve[1] this is of course appreciated,

Please don't count on me here, I don't know either of the packages in
