Egad, I started to install that but got distracted somehow and now on
checking I see I never did... thanks.

I needed a few others too, like libncurses-dev.  And a few more.

But now I kind of see how to find the needed stuff.

Still though, I hit a little snap at the end of compile I haven't
figured out yet:

[...] snipped all but last of `./configure'

  creating src/epaths.h
  cd /usr/local/src/bzr/emacs/trunk && autoheader
  /bin/sh: autoheader: not found
  make: *** [/usr/local/src/bzr/emacs/trunk/src/stamp-h.in] Error 127
  config.status: executing gdbinit commands

aptitude knows nothing about `autoheader' or even

  aptitude search header|grep auto
