You have several choices here:
* Use pbuilder to setup a build environment.
"heavyweight" but simple.
* Use chroots for building.
simple and well understood.
These two choices suffer in that you can't get a graphical
environment within them. So if you build a package for sid
which used Xorg you couldn't test it.
To solve that problem you could look at using something else:
Complex to setup perhaps, but flexible.
Simple to setup, but may be too slow.
