You should not execute make and configure automatically.
You should pass some parameters to them. I don't know how packagebuild
works, but I am pretty sure you should write the exact commands by hand.
Or edit the existing files by hand to execute the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-run-updatemenu --disable-build-menus --disable-menu-system
make prefix=/path/to/debian/fvwm-themes-x.x.x/usr ROOT_PREFIX=/path/to/debian/fvwm-themes-x.x.x install

I may later rename ROOT_PREFIX to DESTDIR, but currently, just pass the
exact commands that I wrote above. Forget about DESTDIR for now.
After you succeed with creating some initial deb, you should add a
post-install script that should:
1) run update-menu
2) disable all unexisting programs (change themes/default/menus*)
for a user. In other words, this post-install script should do the things
that are skipped on the deb creation by calling ./configure --disable-*.
We will help you with the post-install script if needed.
You should have some knowledge about creating packages, it's not trivial.
If you want to go this way, you should prepare to learn how exactly both
fvwm-themes and deb packages work. Hopefully you will succeed.
