Oddly that ended poorly.... not sure why:
 sudo apt-get build-dep emacs24

  Reading package lists... Done
  Building dependency tree       
  Reading state information... Done
  E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list

I'm pretty sure I don't need source pkgs to build emacs so must be
something else going on.

cat source.list:
  deb jessie main contrib non-free
  deb jessie/updates main contrib non-free
