Unix Review tells us about CheckInstall.

"CheckInstall will create packages in RPM, Slackware, and Debian format. However, you actually have to have the appropriate packaging system installed to be able to create packages in other words, you can't create Debian packages on a Red Hat system, unless you've installed dpkg and you won't be able to create RPMs on a Slackware or Debian-based system unless you've installed rpm."
