Not afaik, but you've chosen a rather complex method for it.

Here's my ~/bin/makepackages:

apt-ftparchive packages . > Packages
apt-ftparchive sources . > Sources
gzip -c Packages > Packages.gz
gzip -c Sources > Sources.gz

(Yes, I know I could do that in one line. No, I don't care.)

Override files are totally pointless in this context.
