It is easiest to either get all three as deb packages (ekiga opal and
pwlib) or to compile all three from source (./configure, make etc) to
make sure you have matching versions.

So I suggest you remove those header packages that synaptic found, and
then install the ekiga deb from http://www.ekiga.org/

Reason to get all packages from the same place is that many recent
ekiga bug fixes are actually not in ekiga but in opal and pwlib.
Therefore the pwlib and opal packages on www.ekiga.org are actually
development snapshots, rather that official releases - these snapshots
match ekiga best.

2.0.9 packages for Ubuntu are at http://www.ekiga.org/

2.0.11 packages in Debian sid may also interest you.
