My apologies, I sent this reply directly to Andrew by mistake.

make quicktest worked on my debian x86_64 system until approximately 4 
or 5 days ago using the latest source from git. It failed as of 
yesterday. I will attempt to add packages to negate missing items 
reported during 'configure-developer', on a bit by bit basis. Is 
possible it's not something that's missing but something that was 
installed after the last success?

So from what Andrew  says, I assume these failures can be ignored as the 
process would be to just disable them according to what packages are 
installed? Is there then any point running 'make quicktest' as a matter 
of interest?
