Thank you very much for the detailed information on how to do this. 

I should be able to get it done within a week, despite being in the final stages of development on my own MIDI creation.  I also have a Rosegarden fix to test, and should be able to get to that too, this week.

There is a wiki page
but in short, here's how to do it on Ubuntu:

1) unpack the tarball and cd into that directory (fluidsynth-1.1.6)

2) install dependencies:
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake
sudo apt-get build-dep fluidsynth

3) build:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..

4) Run
sudo make install
...to install the new version. Once you have finished testing, run
sudo make uninstall
...to revert to the version that comes with Ubuntu.

5) Make sure you restart QSynth or other applications using FluidSynth 
after running "sudo make install" or "sudo make uninstall".

Please *do not* move .so files, or files in /usr/bin, around manually. 
Only use "sudo make install" / "sudo make uninstall" to switch installed 
FluidSynth version.
