1. Debs from marrilat.free.fr aren't supported (the developers have some
issues with them).

2. Rc2 is very old.

...so, you should download the source of 0.90rc3 or (even better) CVS,
compile it yourself, then mail back if you still have problems. When you
do, follow the instructions in DOCS/bugreports.html

Also note that it's really easy to build your own custom debs from the

$ export DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="(insert whatever arguments you want to pass
to ./configure)"
$ fakeroot debian/rules binary

If you screw up/ want to change your options/ whatever, use
$ fakeroot debian/rules clean
