- apt-get build-dep dwm
- apt-get source dwm

and then, in the dwm-directory:
- edit the source like you want
- dpkg-buildpackage
- dpkg -i ../dwm*.deb

between editing the source and building the package you may want run something like 'dch "local changes"' to prevent your dwm gets overriden by apt with the same version in repository.
