I created a squeeze chroot installed build-essentials and devscripts and added the wheezy deb-src repository.
I then started with apt-get source qt4-x11, run dch-i for adding a changelog entry and used debuild -sa to created packages.
Some kde packages required newer versions of other dependencies which I backported in the same way.
On PowerPC architecture I am stuck due to some errors which I need to investigate.
