Honnestly, it seems difficult and dangerous to automate that way.
when you backport a package there are plenty of reasons you should take care
of dependencies, in particular when there's a major upgrade at some point.
It is often the case that you better downgrade some package's build dependency
than automatically download and compile the latest version.
My though in your case would be that you better setup a sid chroot with
automated tools like debootstrap and then try your applications without
having the risk to break the system as a whole..
