here is a first patch to create a debian package.
Extract the debian.tar.gz into the build directory then patch the build.xml with the build.patch.
Use "ant installer.debian" to create packages
but its buggy ...
i will fix it.
now spark startup worked.
'spark' package has appeared in debian repositories, see http://packages.debian.org/testing/main/spark
If you ever build spark 2.6.0 for debian, please rename package to 'spark-im' so it won't conflict with debian's spark
SVN trunk already has been patched so the package name is spark-messenger
