At the moment - no. The dpatch maintainers were talking about porting
dpatch to cdbs a while back, but I haven't heard anything more.
But it's worth saying that the current patch system included in cdbs was
just a quick hack intended to demonstrate a plug-in patch system; I was
hoping someone would write a better one at some point :)

You can change DEB_PACKAGES and DEB_UDEB_PACKAGES.

I believe changing DEB_BUILDDIR will work, as Robert said.
