One thing on that: The list does not mention xorg-dev.  Apparently
that would mean that xorg-dev is not a dependency then eh?

For the record, I'm not looking to 'apt-get install' emacs24, although
I'm pretty sure somewhere along the line apt-get is going to want to.
I just want to build emacs-24.4 from bzr sources myself.

I've got everything up to the 'configuring' wired.  bzr branch etc.
And have built emacs quite a few times over the last 6-7yrs or so.

Its just been such a good while this time that whatever I'd learned
has slipped out of my pea brain. 

List of deps:
bsd-mailx | mailx, libncurses5-dev, texinfo, liblockfile-dev,
librsvg2-dev, libgif-dev | libungif4-dev, libtiff4-dev | libtiff-dev,
xaw3dg-dev, libpng-dev, libjpeg-dev, libm17n-dev, libotf-dev,
libgpm-dev [linux-any], libdbus-1-dev, autoconf, automake,
autotools-dev, dpkg-dev (>> 1.10.0), quilt (>= 0.42), debhelper (>=9), 
libxaw7-dev, sharutils, imagemagick, libgtk-3-dev, libgnutls-dev,
libxml2-dev, libselinux1-dev [linux-any], libmagick++-dev,
libgconf2-dev, libasound2-dev [!hurd-i386 !kfreebsd-i386
