I want to create a specific Debian control file from a template file.

So in rules file i put this option to specify my new control file:

dh_gencontrol -- "-cdebian/control_new"

This file contains all information about binary to build! But I have always get this error:

dh_gencontrol -- "-cdebian/control_new"
dh_gencontrol: No packages to build.

Because it checks debian/control.

$ cat control_new
Source: xxx-xxx
Section: bb/web
Priority: optional
Maintainer: joujou joujou <joujou.joujou@gmail.com>
Standards-Version: 3.8.2
Package: do-xxx-xxx
Architecture: all
Description: my description

$ cat control
Source: xxx-xxx
Section: bb/web
Priority: optional
Maintainer: joujou joujou <joujou.joujou@gmail.com>
Standards-Version: 3.8.2

What should I do?
