apt-get source the xserver.
then dpkg-buildpackage it, resolve any dependencies.
CTRL-Z the build after a while.
xc/ should be build-tree/xc/
go to the xf86-video-unichrome directory.
do the following:
If the above runs without problems, your X build was far enough
advanced, you can just fg and ctrl-c it now. If it doesn't run, then fg
the build, and try again a bit later.
This is quite unscientific, but does work quite well.
When the unichrome build is done, run make install, and the binary will
clutter up dpkg.
