I'm not sure if it's possible/viable on scratchbox and the final SDK, but 
things like pbuilder make this easier (since they are in essence 
mini-autobuilders). For development purposes, of course one may want to 
control exact packages and versions. When it comes to proper builds, however, 
pbuilder et al are very handy as they allow you to check things compared to a 
predefined, but pristine status (i.e. no whoopses because you manually 
installed something in the SDK but forgot to add the dependency or have 
fiddled with sources.list).
