    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You should probably read the man page for apt-get. I'm not sure what all the options are, but listing is one of them, and at the least you should be able to pipe the output to the sort command to do what you want. I used to use Ubuntu, but now I am running Scientific Linux on all of my systems (a clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux) which uses yum/rpm instead of apt/dpkg.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    If I understand the question, there are several methods... build from source, build from the repository's source package ('deb-src' lines in /etc/apt/sources.list) and rebuilding a binary package. These packages might help:

    apt-build
    Frontend to apt to build, optimize and install packages

    wanna-build
    The sbuild suite of programs (wanna-build, buildd and sbuild) are used to build binary packages from source packages.

    srcinst
    Build and install Debian packages completely from source

    pbuilder
    Personal package builder for Debian packages
