we have to semi-manually start a binNMU (Debian slang for: Leave the
source untouched, but rebuild the binary package). We have a script that
detects which packages need to be rebuilt, which I run occasionally or
when I have reasons to assume that it is needed (usually, you know that
you broke some depending packages). The user can then not upgrade or
install the broken packages for a day or two.

We never build something on the users machine. After all, we are not
Gentoo ;-). Well, besides the documentation index :-)
