    How to upgrade Emacs which is NOT on repo


    Hi folks,

    Debian 504 64-bit
    Emacs 22.2.1


    I have emacs running on the box

    $ apt-cache policy emacs
    Code:
    emacs:
      Installed: 22.2+2-5
      Candidate: 22.2+2-5
      Version table:
         23.1+1-4~bpo50+1 0
              1 http://backports.org lenny-backports/main Packages
     *** 22.2+2-5 0
            500 http://ftp.hk.debian.org lenny/main Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    But I need to upgrade it to the latest version 23 which is NOT on repo. Please advise how to do it. TIA
