I use stdeb to build .deb's from Python source distributions.  I'm not
entirely sure what buildout does, but after letting this screencast
play in the background while I work:
http://rhodesmill.org/brandon/buildout , I think that I'm
accomplishing the same goal using setuptools "develop" command with a
"--prefix=" option.

I just tested the new stdeb 0.2.3 at the request of Andrew Straw, and
it was able to produce a .deb from the allmydata-tahoe source tree.  I
intend to configure some buildbots to automatically run stdeb to
produce .deb's of various of my projects: zfec, pycryptopp, pyutil,
