Rebuilding Debian package from source is not essentially different from using a port system and has the advantage that you don't need to compile on the target system and can keep around your packages easily.
Debian is much a source distribution: each packages is compiled automatically 10 times on 10 different platforms before entering testing so this is a very well tested process. This much more than 'it works for me'.
