Check out the programs `dpkg-scanpackages` and `dpkg-scansources` (in
package dpkg-dev) -- I think these are what you want - the most
"automated" way of repackaging that I know of is `dpkg-buildpackage`.
You might check into the buildd's, if they are somthing non-trivial,
they should be in CVS somewhere..
