To find the package for an arbitrary binary, first do: 

dpkg --search /path/to/binary

and note which package contains the binary.

Second, to find out the source for a given package, do:

dpkg --status name_of_package

One of the lines will start with "Source: " and you can use this to
download the corresponding source package on the main archive.

On hamm, /bin/login is part of package "login," which is provided by source
package "shadow."
