Installing squid from source, I can't find .deb files?

Hi, I am installing squid from source with ssl option on debian 6.
But I can't find those deb files which are mentioned on step 10

I followed this tutorial:

I figured this one out the long and hard way. I had been searching for this answer for a while for both ubuntu versions 10.04 and 10.10 so I can only hope this helps. since this was the first result I received from google when looking up the error lets try this.
I also installed all open ssl projects by using the command

apt-get install openssl*

prior to performing my squid installation. I had tried these commands below before with no luck but after attempting when running the command above I achieved success. Which package I needed Im not sure yet I am still weeding them out.

I followed these steps from earlier.

1 - apt-get source squid
2 - apt-get build-dep squid
3 - apt-get install devscripts build-essential fakeroot (if running debian you must install dpkg-dev first before this step I tried debian as well with the same issues)
4 - Edit the rules file by running vim debian/rules
5 - In the # Configure the package section add the following two lines in sequence and spacing as the lines in the section

--enable-ssl \

(ex: mine in 10.10 was located at /usr/lib/ssl)
you must make sure to include the \ symbol spaced one space from the file or command.

6 - ./configure
7 - debuild -us -uc -b
8 - cd ..
9 - apt-get install squid-langpack
10 - dpkg -i squid-package-version-#-.deb squid-common-package-version-#.deb

This will install the entire package and its working in my configuration. Which is a standalone reverse proxy server sitting behind a firewall proxying both http and https requests. If you miss step 9 step 10 will report errors with missing dependencies.

Can anyone see what am I missing?
Thanks in advance

If everything built fine (i.e. no errors), then you need to find the directory with the *.deb files you compiled. They may have an actual number instead of the "#" sign. Maybe check the Makefile and see where the file was written? Or use the find command to search for squid*.deb files in your directory tree. But I believe it should be one directory up from where you ran the debuild command.
