I figured it's a good time to start testing builds on various platforms,
so pulled down the bzr and tried to build it on an Ubuntu Hardy laptop
I have lying around.

It got through without trouble, but ./configure with no
arguments reports:

  checking for KDE 4.x header path... configure: error: You specified building 
kde4, but you have kde3 installed!

Of course, I did no such thing; it defaulted to kde4.  And from the
pages-long list of configure options (configure --help) I can't figure
out how to turn off kde4 support -- let alone specify building it.

I looked in README, which is out of date (doesn't mention kde3 or kde4),
but tried --enable-gui=gtk,kde3 and that worked.  Someone who knows what
configure now accepts should update README.

It then diagnosed the lack of libgif-dev and libsdl1.2-dev, which I provided,
and it got past configure.  It's building now.  (Why does it need SDL when
I excluded SDL from the gui list?)

I see a variety of compiler warnings; should I try to fix them?
There's one in libmedia/gst/MediaParserGst.cpp:259 where it's
comparing an unsigned count to see if it's >= zero, that might cause
