Dealing with Debian source packages

I found this interesting post, quoting:

apt-get build-dep glibc
apt-get source -b glibc

should work

or, if you already have the build-dependencies and source files
downloaded (.orig.tar.gz, .diff.gz, and .dsc):

dpkg-source -x glibc*.dsc
cd glibc-*
make -f debian/rules build

The dpkg-source utility is found in dpkg-dev package.
