1. You can check the depends and add whatever you don't have (downloading
and using dpkg -i.
2. You can put the following in /etc/apt/sources.list and use 'apt-get
update ; apt-get build-dep checkinstall ; apt-get -b source checkinstall':
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
(replacing the host with your favorite mirror). Then install the
resulting package with dpkg -i.
