There's no automatic way to do that, but recent versions of apt-get 
include a "source" option, which will retrieve (and if you specify
additional options) compile/build and install pacakges from debian
source distributions.

Read the apt-get man page (a couple of times); I haven't tried the
source options myself, but I hear they work.
