If it's a debian package, cd to the unpacked src-packages top directory 
(the one containing a dir named debian)  and use the command
fakeroot debian/rules clean

Newer packages have a Build-Depends line in their control file, olders 
haven't yet. There are some ways to view the control file, it is 
located in the debian directory of the source package however.

The first entry should describe the source package, the following the 
binary packages built from it. The source description might have that 
Build-Depends line ;)
