I'd like that attitude change.  Lilypond is not -that- hard to compile
-- it's easier than Mozilla, easier than GNOME, easier than TeX itself.
The dependencies are not well documented in the docs, but the recipe
itself isn't too hard (I have it in .spec form for making RPMs for the
PLD distribution) -- once you get the prerequisites, the rest fairly
flies, especially if you're ignoring packaging issues.

I actually find that the depencies are well documented in INSTALL.txt,
what information did you miss?
Of course, it may sometimes be tricky to find out what RPM/.dpkg
contains the necessary programs and files but that's hardly a
LilyPond problem.
