How can I compile Emacs from source?

The following should roughly do it. Your mileage may vary!

git clone -b emacs-27 git://git.sv.gnu.org/emacs.git
cd emacs
sudo apt-get build-dep emacs
./autogen.sh
./configure --with-x-toolkit=lucid --with-mailutils
make -j4
./src/emacs // test that its working
sudo make install
