No, I meant another thing.

I believe, most of us keep repositories of git packages somewhere under
~/.  For example, for me, ucspi-tcp package is located at

So my workflow is following:

 $ cd /home/iu/devel/salsa/ucspi-tcp
 $ dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
 $ lintian

And here lintian could check, that generated binary packages does not
contains references to /home/iu/devel/salsa/ucspi-tcp.
