checkinstall is good for packages that use the configure, make, make install
process, which I don't think RT does.

You wont get the version in the repo updated; major version changes
don't happen to projects during the life of a release unless there's
some fairly major problem that needs solving.

Oh darn! Well, thanks for letting me know! So, basically, if 3.8
is in the version available, you can forget about 4.x, thanks for that
- now I'm not going to go barking up the wrong tree. Thanks again

You could run your own apt repository, it's not that difficult
(there's several howtos around on the net for it), or create your own
PPA for it on Lanchpad if you'd prefer.

The place you can't get it is the official Ubuntu repositiories, but
there's nothing stopping you creating a deb file and putting it
elsewhere.
