? So do tell, what's the correct way to
"accumulate useful code libraries"?

BTW I'm now on Emacs 25 [1]. The transition was
all but seamless with the new system
version [2]. I like the repository approach much
better than compiling a bunch of stuff
manually, even tho that is very easy, at least
for Emacs.

Actually one can get a more recent version of
Emacs (or whatever is in the repos) with
atp-get/aptitude as well, for specific targets,
with so-called apt pinning [3]. Here is an
example how to do it for w3m-el-snapshot:

    1) add 'testing' to /etc/apt/sources.list,
       in my case

        deb [arch=armhf] testing 
main contrib non-free rpi

    2) then in /etc/apt/preferences

        Package: *
        Pin: release a=testing
        Pin-Priority: -10

        Package: w3m-el-snapshot
        Pin: release a=testing
        Pin-Priority: 800

    3) update and install/upgrade with

[1] GNU Emacs 25.1.1
    (arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf, GTK+ Version
    3.22.11) of 2017-09-16, modified by Debian
