Thanks for having a look.
One thing I like to mention: The upstream sources come with a
based on a apparently old Makefile template for libdirs. It was
broken and created superfluous directories in debian/. I copied
current template, adapted it and applied it as a quilt patch. Is
the proper way to do it?
wondering about the strip stuff:
strip --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note --strip-
My guess is that this is needed in order to properly strip
the .pd_linux so binaries?
Yeah, dh_strip apparently does not consider .pd_linux files as
objects and also there is no way to force it by passing it file
I used the strip command from a mail by Felipe Sateler 
I was under the impression that dh would set the strip options in
the $(INSTALL_PROGRAM) for the Makefile, so that an explicit strip
wasn't necessary. Is that true? If so, I'll change up the pd
packages to use INSTALL_PROGRAM and INSTALL_DATA properly. I don't
know why I didn't do this to begin with.
No, debhelper does not interfere with $(INSTALL_PROGRAM). For
Debian packaging binaries should not be stripped during build - then
dh_strip should deal with stripping afterwards.
Problem is, the unusual filenames goes below the radar of dh_strip,
and (according to Felipe) dh_strip cannot be spoonfed additional
files to strip.
Ok, so unless anyone objects, I'm going to add this to all my pd
packages so they get stripped. That includes pd-motex. I guess that
means the package version gets incremented, since its currently in NEW?
