I haven't used apt-build, but i have installed memstat with apt-get, it's only 8 kb.

macondo@debian:~$ apt-cache search memstat
memstat - Identify what's using up virtual memory.
macondo@debian:~$

#apt-get install memstat

maybe it's too small to be compiled.

I did it.
works fine.I use it as often as I can.
The only thing that doesnt seem to work is when I pinned apt-get dist-upgrade to use apt-build....doesnt seem to work.
Tested via running apt-get dist-upgrade after a successful apt-build upgrade and it shows pakages that need upgradeing when it shouldnt.
I even have done the apt-build upgrade world
it took forever but finished successfully.
Must follow that page exactly to the T.

From the looks of it, apt-build is pretty developmental. Check out debtoo, where they mention they're working on it.

I have been using it since I saw the same article. From what I can determin, the Debian maintainers are a bit slow in getting the source code with their patches on the servers.
I have gotten KDE to recompile and it seems a bit zippier now. Now all we have to do is get apt-build to work with distcc (http://distcc.samba.org/index.html) then we can have lots of fun.

Ain't that the truth


Thats another thing...i made the ignore list but still seems that gcc tried to rebuild.It worked though...even at the articals extreme warning (with laughter) to not re-build gcc
