I can tell you makecat in Debian is not broken; it does what it is supposed to do.
You either used it incorrectly, or just didnt notice that makecat isn't actually
supposed to create the database; the database is created when you first run
Interchange, and not during makecat phase.

If you ran Interchange, and the databases didn't get created, then provide 
us with more input on that problem.
