I ended up using a makefile that automatically builds the .orig.tar.gz
if it doesn't yet exist, leaving away debian/.  The version number on
the .orig.tar.gz is taken from debian/changelog.

--- clip ---
ORIG_NAME = $(shell dpkg-parsechangelog -l$(1)/debian/changelog | grep '^Source:' | cut -d' ' -f2-)_$(shell dpkg-parsechangelog -l$(1)/debian/changelog | grep '^Version:' | cut -d' ' -f2- | cut -d- -f1).orig.tar.gz

ORIG := $(call ORIG_NAME,$(1))

$(1)-build-stamp: $$(ORIG)
	( cd $(1) && fakeroot make -f debian/rules clean )
	$(TAR) czf $$@ --exclude debian --exclude _darcs $(1)

$(foreach pkg, $(OWN_BUILDPKG), $(eval $(call DEBUILD_RULE,$(pkg))))

all: $(ORIG_TARS)

--- clip ---

You can also add make rules for actually building the packages.  As long
as you have the source tree with everything and .orig.tar.gz's as made
above, dpkg-source does the right thing.  (You may want to exclude VC
files, though.)
