Hi Robin,
it's quite easy. On debian/ubuntu:

1/ make directory structure in some temporary dir as following:

	mkdir -p mykbd/debian
	mkdir -p mykbd/opt/qtmoko/etc/im/svgkb/
	cp your_layout.svg mykbd/opt/qtmoko/etc/im/svgkb/
	cp control mykbd/debian

control is debian control file - it should have content like this:

Package: mykbd
Version: 45-1
Architecture: all
Maintainer: Radek Polak <psonek2 at seznam.cz>
Installed-Size: 28
Section: misc
Priority: optional
Homepage: http://www.qtmoko.org
Description: German layout for svg keyboard

2/ pack it up and you should have mykbd.deb:

	dpkg -b mykbd

Creating deb packages from directory structure is quite well described here:
