In such situations I just look through debian/rules, usually there's a
target to extract the tree and another target to make etc. And if
there's a stamp file which would indicate the tree has been extracted,
just touch that and dpkg-buildpackage should build the .debs properly,
with your patch, without re-extracting.
Or you could integrate your patch into the package's patching mechanism.
But that takes just a bit more work, patience, etc.
