I would normally use a lenny chroot for that (e.g. pbuilder and
friends).  That approach has the additional benefit of ensuring that
whatever you have installed on your box won't "taint" the build
environment or conceal build dependency problems, and therefore is
recommended over building packages on your own box anyway.

I'm hoping rather that it won't be too long before 2.6.31 goes into
squeeze, and then we won't have to bother with that.
