From what I saw from the svn repository, is that you patched quite some files
to get this working isn't it?

Why didn't you use the dist_conf method, just specify all paths and files in
and make (actually./configure) kolab with "--with-dist=debian
--without-openpkg". Now you ontain kolab without need to patch it :) For
suse this works now, I guess for debian most of it will work as well. If not
the code should be adapted for it (if possible).
With the dist_conf method you're also getting the possibility to access kolab
at e.g. https://fqdn/kolab/admin iso just https://fqdn/admin.
Without a home the journey is endless
