What's a bit disturbing is that this tarball is created insode the tree, not
one level above (what I'm used to). I suppose there's an idea behind it which
I didn't get yet.

So the supposed way to build from TLA is:
- checkout/update from TLA
- make a copy of the whole tree (since there's no Makefile there's no fullclean)
- in the working copy,
- ./autogen.sh
- ./configure --prefix=/usr
- make dist
- (move the produced tarball somewhere)
- unpack the tarball
- merge with debian/ and patches obtained from "somewhere"
- run dpkg-buildpackage
