Ok. Do you have any hint on how build the packages?

I'm new to Debian, or at least, to Debian packages building.

Have I to unpack the source and try to recompile?
Are there something to change (like the mantainer)?

Until now, I have try to install/unistall some packages
and everything seems to go well. I'm not sure with "base" packages.
I don't want to make my sparc unbootable.

done it.

yes, obviously!
