You could create a .deb package using "checkinstall" instead of "make

cd /path/to/lcdproc-source
sudo checkinstall

That's what I do in Ubuntu when I want to install software from source, and
it works well. It will generate a .deb package in the source directory, and
then install it. The package can be updated or removed through apt-get,
aptitude or synaptic. Since Ubuntu is Debian based, I guess it should work
just the same on Debian.

Hope that helps.
