You don't say what distribution you are working with.  Why not mess
around with the distributed deb-srcs and make a custom .deb out of it.

As you see below, you can choose one among the many different

address@hidden:/usr/bin$ ls -al | grep emacs
   5792 Dec 11  2010 b2m.emacs23
  82760 Dec 11  2010 ctags.emacs23
