wget http://memcached.org/latest
tar -zxvf memcached-1.x.x.tar.gz
cd memcached-1.x.x
make && make test
sudo make install

Here's the step to build/install memcached,but how to build it with debug symbols so that I can use gdb ?

if you run ./configure --help does it give any hint to a --debug argument? –  Tom O'Connor Mar 30 '11 at 8:47
Failing that, you could always set -ggdb as one of your CFLAGS before compiling... –  Tom O'Connor Mar 30 '11 at 8:48
