I started the packaging - libimagequant0(shared) and libimagequant-dev.
No *-doc package yet. I think it can be an overkill.

And I created a repository[0].

[0] - https://salsa.debian.org/debian-phototools-team/libimagequant

About the build:

 - debian/copyright must be checked.
 - there is a lintian that I do not understand why:

   W: file-name-contains-wildcard-character
   N:   The file name contains shell wildcard characters.
   N:   These are most likely unexpanded wildcard characters from (for
   N:   example) debian/*.install files, or it may have been installed by
   N:   accident.
   N:   Severity: normal, Certainty: possible
   N:   Check: files, Type: binary, udeb

  It is true. The '*' is unexpanded. Here it should be 'x86_64-linux-gnu'
  as it is in 'debian/tmp'.

If someone wants to be a 'Uploaders', please do it.
