Synaptic did find it, but its version 1.2.3, too early for this >1.3 
demanding makefile.

I looked at the repo's but did not find a backports entry, nor did I find 
anything from debian-arm not pre-filtered by passing thru the raspian 
repo first, no direct debian-arm entries.

Jessie is running well, and except for the keyboard/mouse miss-fires, 
dead stable. I've tried a stretch install several times on the rock64, 
and setting up an amanda-client to back it up is a sure way to lock it 
up, needs a full 10 second powerdown to reboot and recover. Zip in the 
logs for clues. So I won't touch a stretch install on a working machine 
until amanda can back it up.  And its backing up this jessie install 
every night w/o any hiccups.

Open to suggestions as to what I do about the out of date sphinx-common 
install.  Seems like I ought to be able to find it in backports, but 

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ entry preferred.

Thanks everybody.
