Normally the stepos would be somewhat like:

* ensure submodule is initialised
* sync over submodule to build directory
* overwrite (parts of) debian packaging directory
* call dpkg-buildpackage

what needs to be done here, roughly?
Isn't it enough to make a softlink from debian -> debianpkg in the
build directory?

Hmm, if you do it with submodules then no "download to archive" should be needed.

A makefile could look somewhat like:
(this is a modified version of our novnc-pve Makfile)



ARCH:=$(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_BUILD_ARCH)
GITVERSION:=$(shell git rev-parse HEAD)

all: ${DEB}

.PHONY: deb
deb: ${DEB}
${DEB}: | submodule
        rm -rf ${BUILDDIR}
        cp -rpa ${SRCDIR} ${BUILDDIR}
        ln -s ${BUILDDIR}/debian ${BUILDDIR}/debianpkg
	# copy debian changelog here, and/or overwrite d/control 
        echo "git clone git://git.proxmox.com/git/frr-pve.git\\ngit checkout ${GITVERSION}" > ${BUILDDIR}/debian/SOURCE
        cd ${BUILDDIR}; dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc -us
        lintian ${DEB}

.PHONY: submodule
	# some test to check if the submodule was initialized once
        #test -f "${SRCDIR}/vnc.html" || git submodule update --init

.PHONY: update_modules
update_modules ${SRCDIR}: submodule
        git submodule foreach 'git pull --ff-only origin master'

.PHONY: clean
        rm -rf *~ debian/*~ *.deb ${BUILDDIR} *.changes *.dsc *.buildinfo

.PHONY: dinstall
dinstall: deb
        dpkg -i ${DEB}1
