i have successfully used the program checkinstall to create *.deb and *.rpm 
files from the xfce-stable cvs module and would really like to recommend that 
there is no checkinstall package available in debian woody,
but by searching the "testing" packages at for 'checkinstall' i 
found the package for testing and installed it with dpkg -i in woody.
a checkinstall rpm package of checkinstall can be found via - i 
installed that one in redhat 7.3 with no problems.

the usage of checkinstall is fairly simple:
in your source directory you run
./configure [options]
you will be prompted for the rest ;)
