At present, there is nothing that will ensure that the binary packages
you build are released along with the packages containing their actual
source.  It would therefore require manual attention to ensure that we
meet the source distribution requirements of the GPL, which the FTP team
really hates having to do.

Until the FTP team implements a means of automatically recording some
build-dependencies and the versions actually used as additional source
dependencies, and ensuring that these source dependencies are satisfied
within each release, you should not use this approach.
