Updated 12th September 2014.

Changelog:

* Changed Quazip package name in the package required list.
* Added instructions to download and install QT dev package from qt-project.org. (5.3.1).
* Added zlib-bin to the package required list.
* Added workaround for zipconf.h path.

NOTE: This method is confirmed working this morning using the 3.0.1-alpha branch here.

* Fixed in current alpha * Noticed a slight issue where Mudlet returns 'libpng warning: Duplicate iCCP chunk' to the console, essentially causing the loading widget to incorrectly display.

Couple of small edits. Will now use the correct branch as per the 3.0.1 alpha release and also actually added the link for the Qt binary.

This is how I can see my GMCP transmissions (Not the contents, but which parts were updated), maybe it's similar for MXP?

I've created a Debian 8 image, and looking at the compile process on that vs Ubuntu.

First problem i'm running into: sid is reporting zlib-bin is no longer available, and has been replaced by minizip

Just go ahead and change that, or will it cause other issues?

edit: I changed the reference, and the apt-get update completed successfully. Moving through the list, I didn't have curl installed. I did install it, and http://download.qt-project.org/official ... -5.3.1.run is reporting as not present/permanently moved.

edit2: I found a copy of the file at http://qt.mirror.constant.com/archive/qt/5.3/5.3.1/
curl wasn't working properly, so I just downloaded it through ice weasel - And discovered i'd installed a 64bit debian that can't (yet) run 32bit binaries. Just switching to 64bit (for now)

Um, qt is up to 5.5.0 or .1 now I think... {Though the bleeding edge stuff SHOULD compile on any Qt5.x version - if it doesn't I like to know what doesn't work} - and I have experimented with a Qt4.x backport off of the latest 3.0.0 preview (post-delta) here.

Ah:
In the [url=http://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/changelogs//main/z/zlib/zlib_1.2.8.dfsg-2_changelog]Debian zlib1g changelog[/url] it was wrote:zlib (1:1.2.8.dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=low

* Drop zlib-bin package as minizip has now been packaged separately,
delay due to lack of notice regarding upload (closes: #753070).

So I'd make sure you have zlib1g-dev and any dependences.

Quite possibly, I was just following the instructions using specified versions - With your comment however in the other (Ubuntu) thread that Travis is running on Ubuntu 12.04, i'm just going to switch to that and discontinue debian setup.
