Yup. I do the same. The specific need, which I do hit periodically,
I've got a Debian system but I need to build package FOO slightly
differently from the default package. How do I do that? How was
that package built and configured the first time?
I recently had that exact problem as I needed to built some PHP4
modules (mnoGoSearch in particular) that are not packaged under
Debian. I then follow the patter I quoted on my test machine to get
the details of how Debian builds and packages PHP4 by default,
edited that as appropriate to build what I wanted, got it pretty
there, and then rolled to production.

Damned right. Even then I get burnt sometimes (things I forgot or
didn't know to check for).

I never claimed to be human.
