gnubg.cfevaluate() looks perfect for cube actions. It's nice because it
gives equities for
all possible cube actions, so it is easy to see the magnitude of errors. 

gnubg.command('hint') is nice because it has a list of moves with
evaluations, so you can see 
how bad are the alternatives. 

If gnubg.command('hint') is a dead end, could something else return the list
of candidate 
moves along with the equity and the evaluation (six numbers giving the
chances of 
each player winning, winning a gammon and a backgammon) for each?
