Not in general, no. Sometimes it's possible to unpack a package into
your home directory and adjust the build to use that if you're just
testing, but I wouldn't advise doing so for anything that's going to be
uploaded to the archive.

IME debian-admin are usually pretty quick to install build-deps.
