That is great news---but I downloaded the svn source and
debian/control has a list of build-deps as long as your arm.
Unfortunately I can't find any of them, as I don't know what
repositories to look in.  My root image contains the following pitiful

  deb http://repository.maemo.org/ bora free non-free
  deb-src http://repository.maemo.org/ bora free

What repositories to I need to add in order to be able to run
dpkg-buildpackage on the sources?  I'm sure there must be useful
repositories at garage.maemo.org, but I don't know where.

(If it makes a difference I am running under scratchbox2 using the
Code Sourcery toolchain.)
