Not really, but you should always write a mail to the maintainer, too !
(Luckily I've seen this one...)

oh. Hmm. A new upload is coming in an hour :-) 
Seems that I should upgrade my system a bit...

The gpm mouse support from jed requires it.

My system is
Linux lathspell.westend.com 2.0.35 #4 Mon Jul 20 18:58:02 CEST 1998 i586 unknown
and I never had any problems with building.
I've just examined the Makefiles. Do you have a environment variable called 
"ARCH" ? If so, it could really make some problems. Is this variable Debian standard ? 

Anyhow I fix it, so that you can compile without problems.
