You can't build a .deb by just untarring the source and doing configure,
make, make install.

You have to get the source like this:

apt-get source package-name

Then cd to the directory that is created, and run

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

Please see http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/ch-build.en.html.
