Currently, you can't build debian packages natively, as neither a good dpkg
nor a good dpkg-dev is available. There are three problems:

dpkg reports the wrong architecture
dpkg-shlibdeps hangs the machine (and I have no clue why)
dpkg-gencontrol needs a patch (see bug don't-remember-the-number)

Let me know if you are prepared and I will tell you how you build natively
and still build the package... but it's not easy, unfortunately. I hope this
will change soon.
