deb script tools

I created a debian package (dpkg --build) recently and then moved it  
over to my Ubuntu dev box. Everything worked fine. However, I don't  
have access to tools like dch (debchange) and others which allow me to  
bump version numbers, build numbers, etc., like I do on a Debian  
system. These tools are included in the devscripts package:

I did a port search for debchange but it is not in the port tree. Are  
there any equivalents to these apps in macports? If not, I'll just  
have to use my Ubuntu box.
