[PATCH] Deb packages should include the binaries

The Deb packages were missing a dependency on "build install" from the
binary target - this fixes that, and cleans up some inconsistencies
elsewhere in the rulesets.

Traditionally, Debian packaging uses a file called "build-stamp" (or
"install-stamp", etc) in the main source tree. The initial deb package
support for Git tried to move this "build-stamp" file into the debian/
directory, but some instances were missed. That problem, however, was
incidental - the real fix is the missing dependency mentioned above.
