The steps to split FreeCAD into smaller packages:
1. Add a new package name to the control file (e.g. freecad-fem)
2. Write a file freecad-<PACKAGE>.install (e.g. freecad-fem.install)
Add there the files which should go to this package, e.g.:

3. Adjust the file freecad.install to avoid that the files appear in two packages. Instead of
a more concrete list of files must be set.

Use "fakeroot debian/rules binary" to avoid to build from scratch.

Rather than using this method, maybe look at the old freecad 0.12.5284 package from the Ubuntu 12.04 repository which didn't use any .install file but did it from the rules makefile. Attaching the debian folder for future reference as Ubuntu 12.04 will soon reach EOL and it may disappear from the site.
