Subject: deb-pkg: improve maintainer identification

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.

I've removed some unnecessary braces. Also, "Anonymous Maintainer" seemed
somewhat redundant to me; just "Anonymous" should do.
