dpkg-source -x (or unpack yourself). Then cd into the top directory of
the package and say "dpkg-buildpackage". Specifying "-b" will stop a
source package being generated, which will speed things up a bit. "-us"
and "-uc" disable signing of the .dsc and .changes respectively.
Personally I always found dpkg easier than RPM for building packages,
but perhaps it's just me.
