 I think Sjoerd only wants a separate option to build ffmpeg with the
 original upstream source (well just to get-orig-source it) instead of
 adding build-deps and all.  Sjoerd, does the following work?
    DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=risky fakeroot debian/rules get-orig-source
    debuild # no DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS set
