It might have or it might just be that I misunderstand your problem or
the exact details of how packing in debian is supposed to work.

I do think that this should be performed with DESTDIR, and not as well
with resetting prefix during `make install'.

Cannot this be changed to make DESTDIR=`pwd'/debian/tmp install ?

To make sure things are concrete enough I wiped up a little example
that I think shows what you're trying to do.  It's at
<>.  And doing:

configure --prefix=/tmp/prefix
make install DESTDIR=/tmp/destdir

gets me a binary in /tmp/destdir/tmp/prefix/bin/hepp that refers to
the libraries in /tmp/prefix/lib.
