Thanks for all your answers.
I'll build a chroot environment with deboostrap with "unstable".
I'll have to build the new libnet1 package of David Paleino from all
files he upload on mentors.debian.net (with Debian unstable dependencies).
After, I'll can build my package from source.
It seems to be the better solution...
My words "clean" and "stable" means that I have a Debian stable and i
doesn't want to upgrade to testing or unstable, so i need a specific
environment to build package.
