Compiling 9.52 snapshot on Debian 3.1 stable

If someone can help me with compiling the snapshot of the forthcoming
Amaya 9.52 on Debian 3.1 stable, I would appreciate it.  This is my
first attempt at compiling Amaya.  The problem so far is with
../configure - I have been unable to download the correct libraries to
have this run to completion with either the (default) wsWidgets option
or --with-gtk.

I understand very little about these libraries - I would just like to be
able to compile Amaya.

I downloaded:

as per Irene's email to the list on 6 October.  In the Amaya directory I
made a directory 0-rw-build and from there gave the command:


or  ../configure --with-wx   which gave identical results.

At first I got an error about gtk-config.  I also tried:

    ../configure --with-gtk

This gave:

    configure: error: Cannot find gtk-config. Please install gtk
    development library.

I installed:

    libatk1.0-dev (1.8.0-4)
    libglib2.0-dev (2.6.4-1)
    libgtk2.0-dev (2.6.4-3.1)
    libpango1.0-dev (1.8.1-1)

but the same problem occured.  (I cleared my directory before each new
attempt with ../configure.) After that, all attempts at:

   ../configure --with-wx or ../configure

produced an error:

   checking for -lMesaGL... no
   configure: error: OpenGL libraries not available
   configure: error: A problem occurs durring wxWidgets library
                     configuration. Please fix the problem and try

despite my installation of packages:

   xlibmesa-gl (4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2)
   xlibmesa-gl-dev (4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2)

   libwxgtk2.4 (
   libwxgtk2.4-dev (
   wxwin2.4-headers (

I am way out of my depth with these various libraries - I know next to
nothing about the various frameworks involved in X-Windows development.

The doco at:

indicates I should only need these two packages, which were already

   libgtk+2.0-dev     (2.6.4-3.1)
   libfreetype6-dev   (2.1-7.6)

After installing some packages in an attempt to fix the final problem,
and one before
