package compilation madness



Running on the theory that it might help speed up my Pentium II system
(debatable, but that's beside the point), I've tried
recompiling a selection of packages with pentium optimisation, downloading
the debian source and running `./debian/rules binary`. 

However, after having done this, every time I `apt-get upgrade`, these
packages get downloaded from the debian ftp server, and 
my PII optimised packages get put back to the standard i386 version.  
In both cases it's the same version (0.9.5d-2 for bzip2, 1.2.4-33 for gzip),
they were never actually upgraded in the meantime. 

An irritating problem.  Would anyone happen to know why compiled packages
are getting "upgraded" and replaced in this way?
