Yes, you'd just use "Source" instead of "Package" for this situation,

Source: wxwidgets2.8

See: http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting#additionalpseudoheaders

You can skip the edit to debian/rules and just make the last command:

WX_UNICODE=0 dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us

Or at least you could, but WX_UNICODE=0 is buggy doesn't actually work

I'll fix this in the 2.8.12 packages I'll be uploading to experimental
