That's the idea behind MUD-Builder:

Unfortunately, as you found with dependencies, it doesn't make sense
to recompile the whole of Debian - that'd include the base packages
like libc6, the kernel, X etc. which you still want from Maemo.

You've also got to start patching debian/control so that the build
dependencies match what you've got available in Maemo. The end result
is that it needs some careful thought and consideration, rather than
just building all of Debian.

Which is what we created MUD for :-)

Let me know if you've got any questions.
