frEDA SPICE 2: ngspice

Out of the gate, my frEDA SPICE effort hit a small stumbling block. It turns out that (for reasons that are not clear to me) ngspice in Debian testing and sid is available only for amd64 and in stable only for i386. (You might also note that ngspice is considered non-free in Debian.) And of course I'm using testing i386.

So, time to compile. To get config to complete without errors, I had to install a bunch of {something}-dev dependencies, but once I had all the dependencies in place it seemed to compile and install just fine.

Next step, integration with KiCad.
