Then you are at the mercy of someone else finding the will to do it.
I can give you instructions though, it is quite easy.
# apt-get install debootstrap
# debootstrap sid /path/to/your/chroot
# mount -t proc proc /path/to/your/chroot/proc
# chroot /path/to/your/chroot
And there you are rocking in a sid chroot, you can install stuff normally with
apt-get install, in particular you would install subversion, checkout the d-i
tree, go into d-i/installer/build, and follow the instructions for building
Getting the new libparted and corresponding partman in the initrd is a bit
more involved though.
