Compiling software with same options

I have a question regarding the options that are used to build the
source code of a package, there are often some options that can be
passed to either ./autogen.sh or ./configure which influence what module
are build or how a libarary or program is build. How can I find out
which options were used originally when the package was build by Ubuntu?
For example I would like to rebuild the glib2.0-x source from Ubuntu
12.10 with a small patch. I have already downloaded patched and compiled
the Ubuntu source of glib2.0 with:
apt-get source glib2.0-...
//apply patch ...
./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/... && make && sudo make install
And now I want to compile and install it into the prefix=/usr for fix
the bug on the system.
However given that glib is quite an essential library I am a bit afraid
that I am forgetting some important options and that something might be
broken afterwards. Could anyone give me a hint how to properly compile
