First, I've added a control.template for making debian package.

In addition, I've changed architecture choosing rule. The logic of my patch is that if there is no 'arch' specified in package's index.yaml or system-wide default.yaml it will set self->info->data->{arch} to the architecture of current box using 'uname -m'.

Moreover, though x86_64 debian reports its arch 'x86_64', debian is actually not comfortable with this string. So, I've added some code to replace 'x86_64' with 'amd64' which is debian's flavor.

I've tested this patch on my ubuntu and CentOS 6. it works and it seems not to break other things.

Thanks very much.

Instead of "uname -m", why not "dpkg --print-architecture". The latter will return the architecture in the "official" debian format, e.g. amd64.

Well, that's my ignorant to debian system :P. I'll try use 'arch' command to get arch string on Redhat/CentOS and 'dpkg --print-architecture' on debian. What do you think about it?
