Be aware that the description on the OpenVAS website is somewhat
outdated. For lenny, you can use the Debian Backports repository as
described on the website. The only module missing is openvas-plugins,
which is available from the OpenSuSE build service, for example:

Please be aware that you need the development libraries for compiling.
In your case, "apt-get install libglib2.0-dev" will install the
necessary package.

Please keep further discussion on openvas-discuss, there are more people
on that list who might be able to help you.
