    I'd have to say, the outlined procedure is _QUITE_ simple, they even walk you through making one. The process can virtually be cut-and-pasted for any source package, and does not appear any more complicated than checkinstall.

    Note that checkinstall isn't perfect; It doesn't handle symlinks properly (they appear to be stripped in the process)
