Great!  During my time trying, I certainly found and reported quite a lot
of bugs just by hand-building the packages.  This even included fairly
common shared libraries determining their shlibs files from the
_installed_ version of the library, so you had to build, install and
rebuild to get a valid package!  I'm sure that your efforts doing this
will improve Debian greatly.
