I've downloaded Midori, and am attempting to build and install. According to the install instructions, I need to do this:

Make sure you have Python 2.4 or higher installed.

Change to the Midori folder on your
hard disk in a terminal.

Run './waf configure'

Run './waf build'

You can now run Midori from the build
folder like so

'./waf build --run'

Using --run as shown above will make
sure extensions as well as
localizations are used from the build

You can install it with './waf

When I run configure, though, I get the following:

esther@esther-linux:~/midori-0.3.6$ ./waf configure
Checking for program gcc or cc : /usr/bin/gcc
Checking for program cpp : /usr/bin/cpp
Checking for program ar : /usr/bin/ar
Checking for program ranlib : /usr/bin/ranlib
Checking for gcc : ok
Checking for program valac : not found
Vala is required for some extensions.
Pass --disable-vala to not build with Vala.

The instructions don't mention anything about Vala; what is it and where can I get it?

It's a programming language that gets compiled into C (see Wikipedia). This is the first time I've seen it being used - cool :)

If you install valac from synaptic or the Software Centre you should get past that check.
