Clarification of steps on Linux:

cd /tmp
hg clone http://textadept.googlecode.com/hg ta
unzip textadept_2.2_beta.src.zip
mv textadept_2.2_beta/src/scintillua ta/src
mv textadept_2.2_beta/src/lua ta/src
mv textadept_2.2_beta/src/gcocoadialog ta/src
tar xzf 20100416_newlexers.tgz
mv lexers ta/
mv scintilla/src/* ta/src/scintillua/src/
cd ta/src
make
../textadept
