debian: add new and vastly improved packaging for Debian We now break out each module and component of FreeSWITCH into a separate individually-installable package. For each package with executables or modules, we also build a package that includes the stripped debugging symbols so that users can be helpful when they discover bugs in FreeSWITCH.
As of this commit, we successfully build 263 distinct binary packages starting from a clean minimal image on both Debian Sid and Debian Squeeze.
To keep this manageable, we include a program that generates the various Debian packaging files from a consolidated description of the modules and their metadata. The program can even generate this configuration file by walking the FreeSWITCH source tree.
To provide a smooth user experience, we provide meta-packages that install sensible sets of modules and other components.
All files are installed into the traditional and customary Linux directories that you would expect in accordance with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS).
This commit also adds support for running FreeSWITCH as a forked systemd service in Debian.
