patches to existing source packages:

processor architecture or anything, it seems like it shouldn't all
need to be bootstrapped entirely from scratch. Ideally, many of the
build dependencies could be satisfied initially from unadulterated
packages already available in Debian, and then replaced with custom
patched versions once any problem dependency cycles have been
