Good luck :-)

Just do the following, if it is only for a test anyway:

cvs co -l kde-i18n
cvs co kde-i18n/es
cvs co kde-i18n/admin

then change into kde-i18n. With the installed packages you need to install 
dh-make and use it with the template in /usr/share/doc/kdelibs4-dev/dh-make. 
Fill out the version information and that's it. then enter dpkg-buildpackage. 
The problem is as you mention that you need automake1.6. I've a set of debs 
here that I use for builiding which I backported from sid to woody. I've 
uploaded them so you can use them.


You could also use the debian dir in kde-i18n but then you need to modify the 
control and the rules file (besides the changelog for the version number, use
