EDIT: I think I misunderstood your question originally.
If you're trying to compile and install a package from source, and it's not working, and you want to edit / path the source to fix this (I just noticed it looks like you submitted the linked bug report) then by all means, Stack Overflow is the place to ask, because you're rewriting portions of the code (programming)
Otherwise, see my original answer:
If it's your code which doesn't compile, or it's a library / API / SDK / whatever you're using in your code, I would suggest StackOverflow.
If it's a software package you're trying to install from source on a *nix system, I would recommend Unix & Linux.
If it's a software package you're trying to install from source on a windows system, ask on SuperUser.
If it's a software package you're trying to install from source on Mac OS X, ask on AskDifferent, SuperUser or Unix & Linux.
