Oh, it builds from source just fine. It's failing on the package
install, because the Debian packages expect to find a shared library
libparrot.so.1.0.0. But, Parrot built as static because it doesn't have
a hints file for that platform to tell it that building a shared parrot
library is safe.

Okay, for now they'll both use the "linux" hints file, but if you ever
need different configuration parameters than linux, let us know and we
can create a separate hints file.
Could you send me a copy of the file lib/Parrot/Config/Generated.pm in
the parrot build directory? I particularly need to know the values of
the "archname", "osname", and "cpuarch" configuration variables, as I'll
use those to tell parrot "use the linux hints file for this architecture".
