Set up qubes-builder [1], clone the repo into qubes-src subdir of
qubes-builder repo, then add:
    COMPONENTS += your-component-name
to builder.conf, and `make your-component-name` from top level
qubes-builder dir.

Documentation on how to package your own things such that they plug
into the Qubes builder framework (via Makefile.builder) can be found
under doc/ in a checked out qubes-builder.

If you have further specific questions, feel free to ask on qubes-devel.
