Actually, pretend languages can use and incorporate local dependencies 
too, its just that pretend programmers (that only know "real" languages) 
are generally unable to get things to work because there are no websites 
to hold your hand ;)


Andrew, when I bump up against that problem I just grab the deb sources 
for the version I need, and build it on the OS that I need it for. 
Sometimes a bit of makefile hacking is required (like for pre-multiarch 
systems and post-multiarch packages) but generally it *just works*.

Just start with an apt-get build-dep libn3l and start from there.
