It needs the deb-src urls so that it can fetch the source package
description to install the build dependencies.  If you don't want to add
the deb-src urls, then you can download the dsc file manually.  Just go
to, and click on the .dsc file
listed on the right-hand side.  Then look at the Build-Depends line.
That's a list of all the packages that are needed to build.
