Yes, there is. It requires quite a few modifications to debian/rules. 
I have done this before for building our internal Exim packages with
embedded Perl support. I just keep multpile EDITME files in the
debian/ directory and have debian/rules copy them as needed.

I have contacted Mark Baker about this before, but he seems not to
have had the time to look at my patches.
