I have a need to create my own .debs for a box at work, and I'd like to use precompiled stuff when I can. How do I create a custom .deb from a precompiled package, a la firefox or MySQL?

If your package does not require pre- or post-install steps (or if you can do them by hand), then check out checkinstall.
