Proper and easy way for any source is build it under /usr/local
following source documentation and you set your PATH right.

But what you really needed is install mozilla-snapshot and its friend.

  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.0.20021212.09.trunk-1
  Version Table:
     0.0.20021212.09.trunk-1 0
        800 http://http.us.debian.org unstable/main Packages

Anyway you want to run latest, you need to be unstable :)  Can you
habdle it?

Matus was right.  I agree but I would do this a bit differently If I had to
(I did not do this.)  After adding deb-src for unstable and in
testing environment (or in woody if you are lucky)

So if you wanted to rebuild for slightly old environment than latest

# apt-get build-dep mozilla-snapshot
# apt-get source -b mozilla-snapshot
