Here's my debian/rules file, in case it helps:

#!/usr/bin/make -f
  dh $@

BUILD_DIR = $(CURDIR)/debian/myapp

  rebar compile
  mkdir -p rel
  cp debian/reltool.config rel
  rebar generate force=1

  mkdir -p $(BUILD_DIR)/etc/init.d
  mkdir -p $(BUILD_DIR)/opt
  mkdir -p $(BUILD_DIR)/var/lib
  mkdir -p $(BUILD_DIR)/var/run
  mkdir -p $(BUILD_DIR)/var/log
  mv rel/myapp $(BUILD_DIR)/opt

  install -D -m0644 debian/vm.args $(BUILD_DIR)/opt/myapp/etc/vm.args
  install -D -m0644 debian/app.config
  install -D -m0755 debian/myapp.runner $(BUILD_DIR)/opt/myapp/bin/myapp
