To help the building from source on Debian and Ubuntu, which is not completely straight forward on the now current versions of gcc/g++ on these platforms, I have prepared all that would be required for a basic Debian/Ubuntu package. The Rosetta license does not allow the distribution of the packages through Debian, obviously. These packaging-instructions were rather aiming at the many local system administrators who may decide to run them themselves for a distribution of Rosetta in their lab or possibly just find it interesting to compare those build instructions and patches with what they do.
Instructions are placed next to regular packages on the Debian Med repository at http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/debian-med/trunk/packages/rosetta/trunk/debian/#_trunk_packages_rosetta_trunk_debian_. To build the package, one checks out the debian folder into the Rosetta source tree, makes sure to have the packages build-essential and scons installed and then starts it all off with "
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us". Comments for improvements just drop here, email me (moellerUdebian.org) or discuss on the Debian Med mailing list.
