Instrument driver compiled for debian on CentOS

I have a point grey blackfly camera i want to address from centos. The driver libraries are compiled for ubuntu and, i have verified, work fine on that os. When I naively try to build the package (using dpkg to intstall some 10 .deb files) on CentOS, I see two errors:

`dpkg (subprocess): cannot set security execution context for maintainer script: Invalid argument`

and

`Package libc6 is not installed.`

Besides asking the manufacturer to prepare new drivers, is there anything I can do? I've been reading a little about alien, debootstrap, and chroot. Are any of these well-accepted workarounds?

Any help would be appreciated.
