that's rather ... long-winded, three far easier ways spring to mind:
1) alien -t midori...deb
produces a tar.gz from the deb
2) ar x midori...deb
splits the deb in it's three parts, use the data.tar.gz
3 try opkg install midori...deb
ipk and deb are somewhat similar -- it might just work (at least the  
metadata package information is stored on a different place, so i won't  
really recommend doing that unless you know your system! i mention it for  
completeness' sake).
