I did the following after editing my /etc/apt/sources.list to only  
hit the src packages as root:

$ apt-get update

$ apt-get upgrade # just for the sake of it

$ apt-get build-dep libyaz-dev

$ apt-get source --compile libyaz-de

$ dpkg -i libyaz-dev_2.1.44-1_amd64.deb libyaz_2.1.44-1_amd64.deb

$ apt-get build-dep idzebra-2.0

$ apt-get source --compile idzebra-2.0

$ dpkg -i idzebra-2.0*.deb libidzebra-2.0*.deb # note no "install"  
after the -i, that is redundant

I haven't started up zebra or yaz yet, but things seem to be in the  
right places.

Thanks for the help!
