 Download the source code of development version:

   http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/snapshot/emacs-master.tar.gz

Or a stable version

   ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/

If you are on a Debian, the following the following two commands will
install all the libraries that were used to build Emacs.

  apt-get install build-essential
  apt-get build-dep emacs

Go ahead and compile the tarball.  Follow the instructions in
INSTALL.BZR for development version and README(or whatever) in the
stable tarball.

Now you will get an Emacs which has same set of capabilities as the
original build.

Now if you want to add to or remove from default set of features then
you have to configure your Emacs differently.
