Rmagick and debian unstable

Anyone use new rmagick on debian unstable (sid)? via gems?

Trying to do a naive gem install, resulted in borkage. Trying from
source, seemed to result in same borkage. (./configure --without-perl
--without-magick-plus-plus --enable-shared --disable-static) btw,
there wasn't a pretty summary at the end like README.txt seemed to
indicate. has this been removed? (could possibly be prevented by
these errors, too).

I haven't looked in depth (hoping someone might have an idea to save
me some time). Versions are:
% Magick-config --version
% ruby -v
ruby 1.8.2 (2005-04-11) [i386-linux]

and the 1.8.3 release of rmagick (gem and .tgz)

There are compile errors, but it seems to be based on:

checking magick/api.h usability... no
checking magick/api.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: magick/api.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: magick/api.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: magick/api.h: see the Autoconf documentation
configure: WARNING: magick/api.h: section "Present But Cannot Be Compiled"
configure: WARNING: magick/api.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result
configure: WARNING: magick/api.h: in the future, the compiler will
take precedence
configure: WARNING: ## ------------------------------------ ##
configure: WARNING: ## Report this to rmagick@rubyforge.org ##
configure: WARNING: ## ------------------------------------ ##
checking for magick/api.h... yes

A longer error list from the gem up until a ^C can be found at:

Cameron told me off-line that the version of ImageMagick in sid is 6.2.3-1. This version includes a change which makes it impossible to use with RMagick. I reported the problem when 6.2.3-1 was first released and the ImageMagick team immediately released a fixed version, 6.2.3-2. However, this fixed version is not yet available for debian unstable.

The most recent version of ImageMagick is 6.2.3-3 and is available from ftp.imagemagick.org.
