I use the search tools at as I  don't really know 
all the apt command switches all that well yet. I simply installed allt the 
f-spot build dependencies (for Edgy):
	sudo apt-get build-dep f-spot

This installed about 24 packages iirc, then I installed the packages listed on 
f-spot's website :
	sudo apt-get install automake1.9 build-essential intltool libtool 

These might be installed in build-dep section, I already had them installed

And then the 3 remaining packages mentioned on the website:
	sudo apt-get install mono-gmcs libmono-sqlite2.0-cil libmono-cairo2.0-cil

The configure and build went without any hitches.

btw, reading the NEWS file in the source tarball, xmp write support has been 
in f-spot since version 0.1.4, though almost every version since mentions 
improvements in that area. I don't actually use the program so I can't see 
any differences between ububtu's 0.2.1 and 0.2.2 . It seems to be a very nice 
and speedy image program, however
