package not installing config files

Hello all,

I've been attempting to make an Ubuntu package for local use.

I followed the guide here:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/HandsOn

Is this the best current guide?

I have created a package called polipo-tor which is supposed to have polipo
and tor as prerequisites and needs only install a few things, including a
config file to /etc/polipo-tor.  However, even though the config files show
up in lesspipe *.deb (attached), they do not get installed and so the package
installation fails when it tries to run the init.d script.

Can anyone help me figure out why?  All the other files get installed correctly.

 Package: polipo-tor
 Version: 1.0-0ubuntu1
 Architecture: amd64
 Maintainer: Ubuntu MOTU Developers <ubuntu-motu at lists.ubuntu.com>
 Installed-Size: 52
 Depends: polipo, tor, tsocks
 Section: web
 Priority: optional
 Description: Polipo web proxy configured to route through tor
  This is the polipo-tor package.
  It installs a new polipo service that listens on port 8124
  and forwards all requests through tor.
  Note that this package makes it easy to route through tor,
  but it does not try to prevent de-anonymization attacks;
  those depend on browser configuration.
