Roughly said, split packages are installed into debian/tmp and then
dh_install is used to copy files to the packages they belong in
dh_builddep makes debs out of that 

It looks like this in 'code', note that this is actually performed by
dpkg-buildpackage or by calling debian/rules directly

cd $top_sourcedir
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install DESTDIR=debian/tmp
dh_install src=debian/tmp
dpkg-deb -b debian/pkgname1
dpkg-deb -b debian/pkgname2

I hope this clears things up a bit -- if not, just reply :)
