Installation complete.  Thanks so much for all your help.

For completeness, I'd like to mention that after a successful  
configure, make failed on my setup with the following error:

gcc -O2 -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wpointer-arith -Winline -Wendif-

After a little research I tried upgrading from gcc-3.4 to gcc-3.5,  
which is the latest version currently available in debian stable.   
The error persisted.  After that I tried upgrading to gcc-4.0 out of  
debian testing, which solved the issue.

Again, thanks for your patience and great advice.
