[Distutils] Generating two Debian packages with stdeb

I have modified the debian/control file to produce two .debs. I have no 
idea, however, how to correctly use override_dh_autobuild in 
debian/rules to put files in the appropriate sub directories. My 
google-fu seems weak, and I haven't been able to find an answer on the 
internet either.

Could you provide a simple example for how I should do it?
