Packaging question

[Not quite sure if this is the appropriate mail list, I was searching
for something like debian-mentors.]

I am working on packaging a GUI for ffmpeg called winff (see [1]). I
requested sponsorship for Debian [2][3] in the beginning of this week as
everything looks all right in Debian.

Now I try to make a package for Ubuntu, but I have a problem with the
following. This program is written in Free Pascal (Lazarus) and is
compiled with the following line:
	/usr/lib/lazarus/lazbuild --widgetset=gtk2 -B winff.lpr
Unfortunately the widgetset is not compiled in the lazarus package (it
is in the current unstable distribution of Debian). Manually I can
compile the widgetset by running:
	cd /usr/lib/lazarus/lcl/interfaces && make gtk2_units
but compiling during the automated process outside of the build tree is
not allowed. Does anybody know how I should handle this? Or which
mail-list is most appropriate to ask this question?


With kind regards,
