You need to have the build dependencies satisfied.  See the head of
debian/control in the source tree.  Or 'apt-get -q -b source gclcvs'.

CVS head is quite a bit more ansi compliant, but it is much more of a
moving target.  Personally, I recommend applications use the stable
branch if they can so we can concentrate on cvs head without worrying
about breakage.

Take care,
