If it is from debian source in unstable etc., it is as easy as:

 $ su -c "apt-get build-dep your-package"
 $ apt-get source your-package
 $ cd your-package
 ... hack source
 $ fakeroot ./debian/rules binary

If you are asking question like this, I do not think you visited our web
site enough :)  Check:


Then, you should check not only maint-guide but few more documentations
like FAQ.

 # apt-get install maint-guide doc-debian developers-reference debian-policy

Also read my reference as a *user* level initiation.

 # apt-get install debian-reference-en

It's chapter 6 gives good overview.
