On a side note - can anyone describe a good way to test such packages
once they're built? I'm running testing and pbuilding against
unstable; with the current libc issue, I can't install my packages.

pbuilder has a login feature that allows me to get a shell inside the
chroot, but I'm not sure how to get my package in there. I can copy it
in from outside, but I belive the location of the chroot changes every
time. It looks like all the hooks get called inside the chroot, so I
suspect that won't work. Is there some other way to handle this
automatically?
