some good news- actually in this case the package maintainers are
two steps ahead of the official 3.0.1 release from the SpatialLite
Frankie has packaged & uploaded version 3.1.0~rc2-1 for Debian,
which means rebuilding for Precise Pangolin is a very easy task; simply
put in a request/beg to the UbuntuGIS team to rebuild their existing
spatialite packages from a clone of the latest Debian/unstable build
then others benefit from it too.
ps- if you want to try yourself, adapt the git checkout and debuild
instructions below; just replace "grass.git" with "spatialite.git".
[keep the repo name as 'pkg-grass']
$ git clone git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-grass/spatialite.git
$ cd spatialite.git
$ vi debian/changelog # tweak the version number on the first
# line to end with -0 or ~custom etc.
$ debuild -i -uc -us -b
[...whiz bang whirl...]
$ ls ../*.deb
there are also pkg-grass/pyspatialite.git, pkg-grass/spatialite-gui.git,
and pkg-grass/spatialite-tools.git build rules to try.
