The build consists primarily of
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --libdir=/usr/lib/gnucash --enable-sql --disable-static
make install prefix=`pwd`/debian/tmp/usr GNC_CONFIGDIR=`pwd`/debian/tmp/etc/gnucash
Not much that really cares that files have been moved around (*)
Of course, if the build dependencies have changed you'll need to modify
the Build-Depends line in debian/control.
Why would you want to build gnucash as a package? The package can be
controlled using the usual packaging system and it makes it trivial to
(*) the primary exception is the sql support libraries as they get
installed into a different place. Simply comment out the parts relating
to sql and you'll be fine.
