DEB packages as generated by CMake/CPack weren't initially targeted because they lacked the ability to automatically determine the package's dependency meta-info, which was a big turn-off.  However, it looks as though this capability works in more recent CMake/CPack versions, so I'm going to look into it again:


If it works out, these will probably be of a "working" quality, but not of a quality that would be accepted into a public package repository.
