I just tried it, but had to download a newer VirtualBox than my 64-bit
Ubuntu-16.04 offered, i.e I switched from 5.0.24 to 5.1.11.
It firstly didn't work out, although I followed Jame's advice right
from the start. No idea how I got it finally working ...

Though, I was surprised not to find the lilypond-git-repo. Did I
overlook somthing?
Anyway I cloned it manually.

Compiling LilyPond with ../configure --enable-guile2 returns:
WARNING: Please consider installing optional programs or files:  URW++
OTF fonts (download OTF files from
and put them under '~/.local/share/fonts' etc., or use
--with-urwotf-dir) extractpdfmark (Optionally using Ghostscript >=
9.20 together with Extract PDFmark can significantly reduce the disk
space required for building the documentation and the final PDF

May I suggest to include those fonts in next release?

Otherwise it works fine so far, maybe a bit slower than usual. (Not
LilyPond, but the whole thingy.)
Or maybe more memory-consuming (I remember this from earlier versions of VB).
