If you got the source packages,read the INSTALL file in it.
Normally it's just to do this(may require root right):
make install

And you need to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and do the following changes

#vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

then added these two lines under the “Screen” section

Option “XAANoOffscreenPixmaps”
Option “AddARGBGLXVisuals” “true”

then added these lines under “Device”

Option “AllowGLXWithComposite” “true”
Option “RenderAccel” “true”

added one line under “Server Layout”

Option “AIGLX” “on”

Finally at the end of the file add these lines

Section “Extensions”
Option “Composite” “Enable”

Now save the file and exit.

And you may also need to install some other packages such as emerald-themes.
So I recommand that you install beryl via apt:
First you need to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file to add beryl repositories

deb etch main
deb-src etch main

Now you need to save and exit the file

Download gpg key using the following command

#wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Now you need to update the source list information using the following command

#apt-get update

Install beryl using the following command

#apt-get install beryl-manager emerald-themes

This will install all the required packages for beryl.
