No it doesn't contain any makefiles or installation infrastructure.
It only contains the png, xml, and .desktop files as well as a gtk-2.0
directory.  I'll have to do some more research about installing this
kind of theme and then look into dh_install.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  I appreciate it.
