apt-build error

Im using apt-build on a new debian installation.
I installed apt-build, added the line:
deb-src ftp://debian_mirror/ [stable|testing|unstable] main contrib
to the sources.list file and the generated the apt-build list with:
root@patator:~ # dpkg --get-selections | awk '{if ($2 == "install") print $1}' > /etc/apt/apt-build.list
then I run apt-get updateand then
apt-build world and got this error message:
tuxman:/# apt-build world
-----> Rebuilding the world! <-----
-----> Building package list <-----
Unable to find source information for adduser at /usr/bin/apt-build line 475.

now even if i remove adduser from the package list the error will remanin, just mentionening the next package.
I assume is a configuration error somewhere.
anyone have an idea of how to fix it?

I didn't hear about this program, here a tutorial:
==apt-build:fetch source and build , optimize pkg for arch.
Synopsis: apt-build [option] [world] [remove pkg] [install pkg] [update] [info pkg]
--source download the source & extract
--nowrapper no gcc wrapper
