Why not ? It is really not hard. Make sure you have non-free sources in
your sources.list, then do :
apt-get source pine
apt-get build-dep pine
cd pine-*
fakeroot debian/rules binary

(the fakeroot can be omitted if you run this as root)

After this, you will have a pine .deb

Please note that this would be a license violation.
