I would recommend downloading the Source-snapshot of GRASS 5.7 which
comes with a proper debian/-folder to build your own .deb on the

http://grass.itc.it/grass57/source/snapshot/ (7.2mb)

You can easily update from CVS with this snapshot, so no long downloads

Give it a try.

I did that on my (heaviliy modified) debian sid box successfully once.
