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:

	cd postgres-7.whatever
	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.
