You need to retrieve and unpack the source package, install
build-dependencies, and invoke "dpkg-buildpackage -rsudo" or
"dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot" in the toplevel directory of the source

The easiest way to do this should be using sbuild; however, since you
need to add an extra option to gcc to make this work (on LC040-processors,
that is), this may not be sufficient.
