GUB is an (almost)-complete separate beast.  It uses the base OS
to build gcc/make/etc, but thereafter it compiles (almost)
everything using only self-compiled programs.  The intent is that
it should be more reliable; as long as GUB's "bootstrap" (i.e. the
toolchain) compiles, it shouldn't matter what distro you're using.
It certainly doesn't use apt.

The bottom line is that GUB could build release-2.15.29, but it
cannot build the current release/unstable.  This means that we
cannot produce any binary releases at the moment.

Maybe GUB needs to be tweaked so that it never looks for programs
on the host OS.  Maybe dblatex needs to be added to GUB (it's not
there right now).  Either of those options will take 1-10 hours.

This is unfortunate.
