After much pain I did manage to build Amaya 11.3.1 on Ubuntu 10.10.
Some notes in case someone else needs to do this.

* Use make, not make all.
* Prepare libwww as explained in http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/cvs.html
* Configure with ../configure --with-libwww=../../libwww/libwww-config
--enable-system-raptor (thanks to
* Apply the fix to gsockgtk.cpp in wxWidgets:
* At one point, you'll get an error about a missing WWWSSL.h. I was
able to comment out the #include, and all went ok
* At the very end, I had to add -lraptor to the link command for amaya_bin

That got me ready to experiment with subpixel rendering, but
unfortunately this is harder than just asking FreeType to yield
subpixel-rendered characters. After making the necessary adjustments
in openglfont.c, I realized that UnicodeFontRenderPoly in glglyph.c
renders the fonts into a bitmap that is hard-wired at 8 bit/pixel, and
I didn't have the courage to go further.

Sounds like a good project with someone with time on their hands...
