Building debs from CVS

Now after I've got a faster machine it's become realistic to build KDE 
packages from CVS myself. I don't understand, though, how to do it. 
Actually, the building itself boils down to debuild. What concerns me 
are build dependencies among the packages.

Building qt-copy is no problem, as it depends on no other KDE package. 
arts depends on qt-copy, but I really don't want to install the newly 
compiled qt packages before I have build packages for everything else.

So, is it possible, only for the purpose of building, to install 
packages in some non-standard location where they can be (directed to 
be) found when building dependend packages?
