You have to run 'aclocal' first, I think.  The whole process is  
automated if you do this:

cd packages/linux_make/
make install && make package

Then you'll end up with a .deb that you can install.  There will be  
some bugs still with 64-bitness.  It's great to test this stuff so we  
can make proper 64-bit builds for the next release.
