Comment (by rdaniels):

 Turns out the build itself is very simple.  It comes with a script that
 takes care of configure, make, and make install. It does, however, use
 some strange directories for the install.  It will take quite a number of
 switches, and possibly some other alterations, to get a sane install.

 The real problem is the number of patches to apply against it.  The devs
 only target 1 release per year, and that's a long time to build up a
 backlog of fixes. The next release is set for June, some 16-17 months
 since the previous release.
