Did this, thanks, and now have the following problems.

Hi Phil,

I'm trying to give pointers without having access to the same
environment, so bear with me if they turn out misleading.

Problem 1:

address@hidden:~/lilypond-git$ sh --noconfigure
processing .
Running autoconf ... 17: autoconf: not found

Hm. Sounds like autoconf is not installed; it's not listed explicitly
in the build dependencies in the Debian package either, so that's
probably an oversight by the package maintainer.

autoconf is not normally a requirement when building from a tarball
which usually contains the autoconf-generated files.  autoconf is only
needed for building directly from a repository checkout.  I don't think
that Debian usually does that.

I see. So IIUC, the build-dep target will give you whatever tools are necessary to rebuild the contents of the official package locally, which might be different from what you want for a custom compilation from source?
