Thought about it,
but I do not know enough about building debs.

I could easily install postgis using the postgresql source package so.

	apt-get install postgresql postgresql-dev
	apt-get build-dep postgresql

	apt-get source postgresql
	cd postgresql-7.1.3
        	./debian/rules config.cache
		# untar postgis
        	cd contrib/postgis-0.6.2
			# ...
