I suggest you contact the ftp-masters about this.

Depends. When you are using Roger Leigh's package, you'll need debhelper
to build it. The CVS-source is a bit rougher, but does not have any
particular Build-Depends I think. 

Running buildd requires perl, sbuild, dupload, cron and an MTA. sbuild
itself needs sudo, apt and dpkg-dev.

I setup a couple of buildds privately in the last months, so I could
help if needed (but I think Falk can handle it)
