Compile Inkscape from svn - packaged

As it my seem obvious to anyone who know me, I do not like to wait for new features to fall into the stable releases of debian, especially when the subject are ilustration and design apps. I've been compiling and running paralell versions of gimp, inkscape and scribus for a quite a few years now. Today, while compiling inkscape into my notebook, 'cause my desktop is "in mantainance" provenient of a font failure, I decided to package the script into a debian package which will install all the dependencies for compiling, check out inkscape from it's SVN repository and compile it with inkboard, python and perl suport.

The package is at: inkscape-frustrado-svn_0.0.1-1_all.deb

To install it run:

dpkg -i

Be patient. It may take quite a while.
