It looks as though menno doesn't have some dev packages installed.

I'm running 10.04 here, I'll try building Ceres today and will report on

It will produce scores for Csound, but it's not a Csound front-end.

The only other synth like it is Mammut. Both are spectral 
editors/resynthesizers. Ceres is wonderful, you can create some 
remarkable sounds with its tools.

Perhaps Kjetil will add some further notes ?
