You can run an XF3 server with the apps using XF4 libs.

|  a) developers are not running Sid
|  b) developers are not running up-to-date Sid

You should run sid.

Then build on a debian machine and just copy the .dsc and .changes to
your system, sign them and copy them back.  (Yes, that means that you
don't get to test the built software, but if the .diff.gz is the same,
that _shouldn't_ matter. ;)
