kbuild, deb-pkg: improve maintainer identification
maximilian attems [Wed, 22 Apr 2009 23:11:20 +0000 (01:11 +0200)]
Try harder to find email and maintainer name.
Debian's own devscripts all use DEBEMAIL or DEBFULLNAME prior to an
eventual EMAIL or NAME environment variable. Match their logic.

"Anonymous" sounds nicer then "Kernel Compiler" if no name is found.
