Compiling ZynAddSubFX on Ubuntu 9.04

ZynAddSubFX does not compile from source by default and there is no configure file. Add the following packages and the build will succeed.

apt-get install fluid libmxml-dev libfftw3-3 mffm-fftw-dev libasound2-dev

I've never been happy with the appearance of ZynAddSubFX on linux. It seemed the fonts were all too big, crowding the screen and buttons. I was going to look into fixing this, which was the reason I downloaded the source version in the first place. But to my surprise, the version I compiled myself looked great. I'm guessing that fluid makes geometric decisions based on the video display it is used on and that the package maintainer uses a lower screen resolution than I do, thus the crappy display.
