Although there are debian packages available, in my limited experience
they do not install anywhere near as nicely as the RPM's.  When I used
them with 4.6.3, permissions were not set correctly, and once they were
fixed I could never get the admin page of the construct demo working even
after hours of tweaking.  I recommend using the tarball, but YMMV.
