Yes, many Ubuntu packages are customized and often don't work unless you
use the same customization options in your build. You can find out what
those are by running 'apt-get source FOO' and then looking in
debian/rules. However it's too complicated to write a clear guide for.
Also, it sounds like you may be building the wrong project. The leak is
in project 'gjs', not 'gnome-shell'.

gnome-shell uses lots of memory, and grows over time
