I tried leaving out xlispstat, but next I found that libdb3++-dev is
also missing. (The search function is down on the Debian sight, so I
don't know what libdb3++-dev is.)
The reason I'm using the O'Reilly book is my lack of knowledge about
networking. The book is a "cookbook" -- very short on underlying
theory and explanations of "why". The idea is that you build the
server using their instructions as a guide, and in the process you
learn what it is that you're actually doing.
If I start leaving things out that are prescribed by the book, in my
present state of ignorance I'll have a difficult time figuring out
what's going on when my results don't conform to the book, and my
progress will be *very slow*.

Was sarge the one before Etch? Is sarge still available?
