Here's my setup.  The first attachment is a script to run in the emacs
source directory as root after doing "./configure ; make".  It depends
on a fake emacs-snapshot package built using equivs.

The second attachment is an init file that handles all the Debian stuff,
including a rewrite of `debian-run-directories' to make its
modifications to load-path less intrusive.
