If you build the package with "dpkg-buildpackage -us -us -B", you can
then bring the .changes to your system, sign it, and upload it. If the
package is not up-to-date, as you say, then just upload that version. If
it is up-to-date, then do a binary-only upload.

The autobuilder always runs the most recent packages. If it did not
build, it is because there is an error in the package build.
