Hm, subscribing to a mailing list for a single question feels like 
overkill to me.

I used a mix of the outdated documentation for 0.4.2a plus reading and 
interpreting the Makefile and the error messages I got during the 
compile attempts. One of them hinting at the missing libusb. After 
adding that using 'apt-get', the compiler ran through the whole tree 
without blowing up. The resulting binaries seem to be OK since they run 
and look for the plugin, find it, but then just quit (not core-dump!) as 
if the plugin is there but it can't find the hardware. USB works in 
general since the mouse and USB storage don't give me any trouble.

My approach worked without problems the last time I installed opencbm.
