Hello Al,

The problem is that guile-1.8 is not supported by modern distros anymore.

I’m not sure if Ubuntu handles this well, but under Debian you can fetch the 
source code with apt-get source lilypond. (Ubuntu just uses the version 
maintained by Debian, so I think this should work out.)
This will download the source code as used by Debian, which means that it will 
come bundled with it’s own guile1.8 version. It also gives you the Makefile 
debian/rules for building and packaging.

So you can just do
apt-get build-dep lilypond
To install the dependencies needed for building, and
apt-get source lilypond
to fetch the source code.

Of course you can also try to install guile-1.8-dev from Jessie/Xenial.
