Hi Adrien,
you can place them in /opt/qtmoko/bin which is included in PATH during qtmoko

It should be quite simple. Just modify debian subdir of some existing packaged 
app, e.g. https://github.com/radekp/qgcide/tree/master/debian

For compiling such .deb you'll need native build working (either qemu or on 
GTA04 itself) or i can make the .deb and upload it to qtmoko apps.
