There's something in apt that will download the source and build it,
but I usually just let apt download it:
apt-get source postgres
and then build it myself:
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -b -rfakeroot

The issues I currently can think of are:
- sshd won't properly allow incoming connections
- xdm seems to take a lot of time before doing anything
- issues with libgtk1.2 giving problems with apps linked to it,
although the situation there isn't clear yet
Hmm, anything else? It's not that bad actually.
