- You can select between Release and Debug build by -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=<Debug or Release>
- Debug build is slower, but gives much more useful output in a debugger
- If you build a bare server, you don't need to have Irrlicht installed. In that case use -DIRRLICHT_SOURCE_DIR=/the/irrlicht/source

I've been building from source on the latest Debian testing with XFCE - and came across a libSM.so compile error. It may be wise to point out that libsm-dev may be needed in your dependency list as well. On another note - dunno if it's any different, but I used libcurl4-openssl-dev because it was recommended on the forum.
