It's worth noting that there is a gnubg package already in Debian (and
therefore probably also in Ubuntu) that I maintain, although it's a
package of the 0.15 snapshot rather than the current development source.
I plan on updating to the current development source (or ideally a 0.16
snapshot) as soon as we sort out a formal position of what's going on with
GPLv3 software.

If you want the trunk, the advantage of having a package already in Debian
is that all of this:

can probably be replaced with:

    apt-get build-dep gnubg

to install all the build dependencies of the existing gnubg package.
Although you may have to separately get the right Python.
