    Since changing debian/rules over to using dh, I've again attempted
to use that more and I think the issue is that the install target for
the generated Makefile doesn't actually install all of the necessary
files. Like the various *.pl files in the top level source directory,
which I think are assumed to be staying where they are, and/or manually
installed where the admin wants them to run from.  (The RPM spec file
does not use it, & also installs to /usr/share/ledgersmb for those types
of files.)
