As you wrote, the process seems to be really convoluted.  I will try to
get through it soon.  At any rate, it would be great if you give me a
complete cookbook in the form of a list of shell commands that I must run
to build the package from scratch.  Something like this:

    cd /path/to/build-dir/
    rm -rf *
    wget [...]
    svn co [...]

Otherwise, I will have to figure out what to do, and this is quite a lot
of work.

I do not see the inclusion of jed-script in the build-dependencies as a

At any rate, I do not yet get the picture of your method.  Once I will
succeed to understand it, I will check if it matches the Debian
recommendations and standards.
