Building SuperCollider 3.7.0 from Source (Debian)

A few months ago we published an introduction to the audio programming language SuperCollider here on LMP.  With the recent announcement that SuperCollider had reached 3.7.0, we Debian Linux users suddenly find ourselves behind-the-times regarding our SuperCollider packages which are likely to be at 3.6.6 for some time.  If you want 3.7.0 now (or any bleeding edge version in the future) you have no choice but to build it from source.

Even though there are basic functionnalities to align the signals in time and amplitude, this software does not aim to be an audio editor.
