Sorry I didn't realise how ambiguous that was. I use debian unstable
repositories but (for reasons unconnected with emacs) this
occasionally does dramatic things to the computer, such as stopping X
working.

My recommendation is/was to do this if you enjoy fixing things, but
otherwise to compile emacs from CVS and use that - as others have
said, it's not a difficult process.
