Yes, don't clutter your system, because it will end in sorrow :-).
Your system will have mix of your local packages and at the end of the
day you will build package which will be:

a) unbuildable
b) uninstallable

Right solution is to use pbuilder, which will:

a) always ensure that package can be built using unstable
b) keep your build environment clean
c) keep your local system clean
