I usually run Ubuntu LTS (server, not desktop) for most of my Linux build
systems. Like Johannes mentioned, I build coccinelle from source.  While
I'm aware of the >= 1.0.6 patch that went in a few days ago, I haven't
built with anything that modern yet. Fact is, since changing jobs recently,
I'm not using backports as much as I used to since I'm stuck working on a
vendor driver.

Anyway, sorry I'm not that much help - I just wanted to answer your "does
anyone use Ubuntu for backports building" question.  Answer is yes, it's
possible to do so.
