Ubuntu doesn't have the necessary compilers, linkers etc. out of the box. It 
takes multiple apt-get sessions plus some clever guesswork to get it all. 
Slackware has all those but doesn't have the graphic libs needed in recent 
enough versions. So either way the task is a bit daunting. 

I fought my way through all this and got build C-C-T-F-Q (Nov 2007) up but 
that was on a different partition. Just copying libraries over wholesale can 
gum up other executables like Firefox. 

When  1.3.5 has major improvements or 1.3.6 appears I'll try again. It is days 
of work on my system, unfortunately.
