That's what buildd's do: they compile source packages into binary
packages, and take care of dependancies. They also give you log files
with error messages when things go wrong, and you can resubmit the
packages for compilation after that.

You'd probably need a complete copy of the (source) archive for yourself
though.. with custom version numbers for the versions with new
compilation options.

The right half of the brain controls the left half of the body.
This means that only left handed people are in their right mind.
