Not necessarily. The tools have matured so much over the last 20 years, 
most of the complexity is handled automatically by the configure script.

Well, that is possible, but may not be the case (it should only require a 
version of a given dependency whose functionality it really needs). The 
only way to find out is to give it a try. If you do, remember that if 
configure says you're missing some library, it may be that you just need 
the corresponding '-dev' package, and synaptic will show you right away 
if that's the case and offer to install it (and its dependencies) for 
you. But if you find that synaptic shows only a version that is older 
than pan is asking for, then yes, things do become complex.
