I only had to make minor changes to package it, least of which being that scrollkeeper-update was being run in 'make install' in the package tree, causing bizarre scrollkeeper stuff to litter the package in strange directories. It's supposed to be run during configuration in postinst of the package.
The other change is to recreate livejournal.xpm as a 32×32 pixel icon. Debian needs an xpm for the "Debian" systemwide menus in X. It's a cosmetic thing.
I wish autogen.sh was included in the tarball, it would have saved me a needless CVS pull. 🙂
