I don't think that's the right way to do it.  If you require changes to every 
package (and probably a modified package manager as well) then there will be 
a huge amount of work involved in building all the packages and keeping up 
with patches.

I am only modifying less than a dozen packages for my SE Linux work and I find 
it difficult enough to keep up with that work.

Is RSBAC usable yet?  There are quite a number of SE Debian machines running 
live on the net right now, while for RSBAC we don't even have a kernel patch 
in sarge because no-one has felt inclined to try my RSBAC kernel-patch 
package and let me know if it's good enough to upload.
