    Description

      The instructions for building 1.2.1, from source, on Debian Stable (Squeeze) are completely broken - both the INSTALL.Unix file in the distribution, and the wiki page at http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Installing_on_Debian

      For one, the version of spidermonkey (libmozjs) is older than the minimum required for Couch 1.2.1.

      For two, even after installing the latest spidermonkey from upstream, I can't get more than half the developer tests to complete after an install. I expect it has to do with path issues and the proper invocation of ./configure - but I can't figure out what the magic incantation is.

      I kind of wonder if anybody has actually tried a full install on Debian Stable.
