The following packages are need to compile cvs inkscape under a default Ubuntu Hoary/Breezy/Dapper system:
apt-get install cvs build- essential intltool libtool libgtkmm- 2. 4-dev libglib2. 0-dev libpng12-dev libxslt1-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev libpopt-dev libgc-dev
to build --. .
Inkscape requires libgc-6.4.
Breezy/ Dapper doesn't require any further work.
Hoary uses version 6.3, which is provided in the Repos. (Is there somewhere to get a .deb for 6.4?)
To overwrite libgc-6.3 with libgc-6.4:
./configure --prefix= /usr
sudo make install
== libgc 6. 5 debs for ubuntu ==

Consider using pre-built packages
This is a short how to build the latest development version. If you don't want to change the source code, you can avoid this effort and use pre-built packages, either the well-tested stable version, or the newest developer's version intended for testing. See Installing_Inkscape#Ubuntu_or_Debian_Linux.
Compiling unstable developement version
Please refer to https://inkscape.org/en/develop/getting-started/
If you used some CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX other than /usr, then you may install using usual 'make install' or 'sudo make install', depending on the location.
If the the location prefix was /usr, then "sudo make install" is not recommended, as debian package manager would know nothing about new package. The better alternative is using checkinstall. If checkinstall is not installed, you can install it the usual way "sudo apt-get install checkinstall".
