Compiling Sources and Maintaining a Debian System..

I have the need and desire to compile some programs myself.

I want to keep these up to date and keep my distribution Woody in sync.

I wanted to recompile (as an example) qpopper

I went through the steps to get the sources.. apt-get source qpopper

I then edited the qpopper*/debian/rules file and ran dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b

I then copied my new compiled qpopper file where it needed to be..

I know this isn't the right way to do it..

Is there a faq on how to compile and maintain a woody setup the proper way?

I appreciate any pointers..
