Question Creating .deb packages on Fedora

I have a bunch of setup scripts (rpm packages) for setting up a new Fedora and CentOS PC. I want to try offering ubuntu as an option to the family. I know I can use alien to install the rpms but there are a lot of scripts missing on a debian based system, not to mention dependencies.

Can anyone give me some pointers or point me in the right direction? Or would it just be best to build .deb packages on a debian based system?

if you have compiled binaries you can package them with epm.
