pbuilder is designed for this purpose.

In summary: Debian does not build from source in woody, quite yet.
But we are getting mostly there.
I welcome people trying to rebuild packages from source.

You should be able to use pentium-builder package and 
pbuilder together to build athlon-optimized Debian,
for example. But I have not gotten that far yet.
I'm making a very slow progress...
