I just tried this (and removed the olsr.org debian directory before 
extracting the tarball) and all I got was an error.

I am not even sure why the /debian directory is a problem, it has been 
there during the last debian release and it was no problem.

The funny thing is that with the olsr.org debian directory you get a 
deb-file. Yes, it has the wrong version number, but it works.
