You may want to look at apt-fu for some ideas/code, which presently seems 
unmaintained, and url not available: 
http://www.yhbt.net/normalperson/debian ... 
But I've dpkg-repack it from my system and uploaded the deb here:

It is also a perl program with many options for rebuilding debian source 

todo: the build util must verify the signature of the source package (the .dsc 
file) with dscverify before building it.
