No, you do not! You need what you already have - the Debian Etch
environment. You can, of course make `debootstrap etch` in trying to not
pollute your clean 'working' environment with build dependencies, or
whatever, but this is not necessary.
OTOH, if you build your binary package in Debian Sid enviroment, they could
be suitable for Sid (that's the point!), but you have a little chance to
install them in Etch due to broken dependecies.
