This is more general than specific, but I've found that using the same
distribution as one of the major developers works pretty well.  That
is, when you have a problem, you can get an answer pretty fast on the
list.  I think Debian or some fedora is the right answer these days.

My personal answer is that I started with RedHat, moved to Mandrake
because it was configured out-of-the-box more like what I wanted, and
then got tired of the RPM dependancy hell and moved to Debian
Unstable.  For me, apt-get and dpkg work a lot better than urpmi and
rpm did in 2003.

But I haven't compiled Debian recently, so I'm the wrong person to
answer your specific question.
