0.6.2 is, actually:

./configure --without-libdb
make -C src jigdo-file

(The "jigdo" binary isn't really needed.)

As of 0.6.2, statically linked binaries which should work on potato
are available from the jigdo homepage (the "jigdo-file for Linux"
download, <http://atterer.net/jigdo/jigdo-bin-0.6.2.tar.gz>).
