I appreciate your how-to, but I would really discourage this behaviour since you get a mixed environment that it's difficult to track if you are not an experienced user and will potentially get you more problems than it solves.
There are at least two good options for you before trying this one:
1) wait that someone skilled enough packages sesame2 for Debian
2) wait that redland is improved. From the comments I've read so far redland should be better than sesame because it's written in C++ instead of requiring a JVM to run on your system. It has bad algorithms inside at the moment, that's why it is so slow in indexing and have been disabled as default in Debian.

On the long term, redland will be better than sesame2, so if you don't need these features NOW, be patient. Otherwise use a distribution that requires to be compiled and you can manage totally by yourself.
