from Annotator/INSTALL :
2. Compile the CLAM-vmqt module
    From the vmqt directory type
    $ scons clam_prefix=/usr/local
the vmqt directory is: Annotator/vmqt.

yes please send the errors. we need linux packages feedback.

the annotator app, loads descriptors, visualizes them and can launch
extractors. but these extractors are separated command-line 

you can compile these extractors (and not annotator) specifying the
scons targets:

$ scons ChordExtractor
$ scons ClamExtractorExample

then execute them with -h to see its usage.
