well i tried the method of removing executing bits and it worked.
well after some guidance from Luke , i added the following under install
rule in debian/rules,

-type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod a-x

it did removed warning , but in anycase it seems that this was not to be
used , please tell me.
and Thanks for your help :)
