I didn't tried it myself, but looking at the manpage of apt-build, it
seems that it can shorten that a lot:
apt-build --patch <file> install <package>

Don't know if you can automate the whole thing with apt-build.  If not
you could combine it with an cron-apt and an extra action for apt-build,
or subscribe to the interested package at
http://packages.qa.debian.org/<package> and create a realy cool
procmail-rule for that ;)

Yours sincerely,
