Not much progress, though.

It is not rebuildable in sid anywhere, due to breakage in glade 480764

build-system breakage, uses a special strange build-system on top of
cmake that suddenly seems to simply break instead of to give a "not

around this by installing python2.5-dev and libx11-dev it still
failed to build at some later point.
