You're welcome :) It might be nice to try out the most recent version of
emacs ... I needed to install libgif-dev for configure to
finish. Now it's compiling ... and seems to have finished without
errors :) Yes, and I can run it just fine. It seems to have trouble
finding some packages required from my ~/.emacs. That's probably
because I didn't install it before trying.
What I have installed is lesstif2 and libgtk2.0-dev. You can try
installing libgtk2.0-dev or libgtk-3-dev or libmotiv-dev.
