enough space ? if you can get a source mirror :
i always wanted to test my auto compiler script and add additional
functionality to work with a source tree. so i could make the changes
and send them to you. currently the script will only work with a suid
build command (i couldn't figure out how to allow "debian/rules" with
sudo : it did not accept relative paths), after compiling some packages,
you could switch to use fakeroot (so we can also try that :-)
i like the idea (ok, the speed doesn't matter for me. it the idea of
someone testing my script, so i can improve it :-)
