The easiest way to go might be:
Do this once:
mkdir ~/vdr-sources ; cd ~/vdr-sources
apt-get source vdr
edit debian/patches/00list in vdr to activate all the patches you
would like to use
dpkg-buildpackage -tc -uc -us -rfakeroot
dpkg -i vdr-dev*.deb
for each plugin you would like to use:
sudo apt-get build-dep vdr-plugin-<plugin-name>
fakeroot apt-get source -b vdr-plugin-<plugin-name>
Now you can copy all *.deb files in a directory of your choice, run
dpkg-scanpackages and add this directory to your sources.list.
It's not that much easier than your script, but you can skip the
"dpkg-source"-call if you build the package with "apt-get source". I
don't think it can be done much easier. But that's the price you have to
pay, if you want to use a custom patched VDR. Put it all in a nice shell
script and you can compile your packages with a single click.
(...dreaming of the day when all the patches are built into vanilla VDR
