That should be possible. I haven't done it myself, but all the packaging stuff
is in the 'packaging' subdirectory. I think you should be able to create
the debian package.

No. By default we don't ship any such tools.

But there are many other options:
 - check out the tools in librabbitmq (our C bindings). Using those
   tools you should be able to create basic queues/exchanges.
 - Using rabbitmq-management plugin you should be able to
   restore configuration (from a json file). That can be used
   to get the initial config. That's also probably the simplest option.
   BTW, there is a python tool released with mgmt plugin.
 - Look at the shovel plugin. Using shovel config you can configure
