Greetings! What Doug said is right -- you can just unpack the debian
sources and run debian/rules build to see what happens. In most
cases, this will actually run several prebuilt 'build-records', and
won't time anything on your box at all. We need this to play nicely
with the autobuilders. If you want to do the timing, execute
'fakeroot debian/rules custom'. Most of this is explained in the
P.S. -- is there a reason not to just use Debian?
