I managed to install from the DVD image, and doing 'apt-get -b source
emacs25' succeeds in building all three lucid, nox, and x versions.
The process doesn't finish completely because 'make check' fails (file
notify tests didn't pass), but all three executables are functional
(although I was only able to test with -nw, because 'startx' fails
with "Unable to determine if running on a console").

Also 'apt-get install emacs25' works, so it seems the package is
building fine now, not just for me:

In GNU Emacs 25.2.2 (i686-pc-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.22.3)
