One problem with debian-ports is that the sources, most interesting the
*.debian.tar.* files. You cannot any longer add deb-src to the
sources.list and apt-get source <package>; dpkg-buildpackage ...

As I understand it the sources have to be added to where the binary
package are e.g. 
http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/pool-hurd-i386/main/g/gdb/ and
the way to build from source is dget 

Is there space in ftp.ports.debian.org also for the source packages?
