If there is an existing deb which suits you, then that may well be a
useful way to go about creating the snap. It depends on whether the
binaries in that deb are easy to "relocate", since a snap shows up at
/snap/foo/current/* rather than the (deb-usual) /usr/bin/foo etc.

If not, and you just want a snap, then it's probably easier to assemble
the snap to build from source, so that it can be told that it will be
running from the snap location.

Make sense?
