my own repository

I'm maintaining a few servers and was until recently happy with the
packages provided in the standard ubuntu repositories.
However I'd like to use a few packages with custom patches applied
for the time beiing I'm either
a) downloading deb-src installing it and hoping that the ubuntu
repositories won't override my installation or
b) building it totally from source on the various machines.
Now my target is to have a local repository with the packages that I
create (preferrably on a single machine) and add this repository to
What I'm hoping to achieve would be packages that won't be overriden
(using cyrus as an example here).
We run edgy with cyrus-2.2 which is linked to the wrong version of
berkeley db if you use a fresh install (can't tell for updates) now I
adapted the source to link to the correct version but still the
package name reflects that it is the original package from the ubuntu
repositories. I'd like to have a package name that reads something
like that: <package>-mypatchversion.deb so that it hopefully won't
get updated by apt (using apt-get on the command line exclusively).
so any resources to create my own repository that will have the
highest priority (or whatever the correct terms are) when updating/
installing so that I can be sure that the packages installed from my
repo won't be updated by ubuntu.
Hope I'm somewhat clear on what I'd like to achieve.
