You take the source package and build it in scratchbox.  Once you've got
scratchbox installed, you can add a deb-src line pointing to Debian to
your /etc/apt/sources.list (inside scratchbox), and then do

    fakeroot apt-get source -b packagename

to download, unpack and build it.

Often this doesn't work because of missing dependencies, and then you
have to download, build and install them yourself.

Check out the tutorial at http://maemo.org/platform/docs/how-to.html
for instructions about installing and using Scratchbox.

Some people around here wouldn't recognize
subtlety if it hit them on the head.
