Not as bad as all that: Ubuntu info on compiling

You might need to compile software depending on the language in which the
program is written. Applications which require compiling are usually
written in *C* and *C++*. If this is the case, you will need to install a
compiler *gcc* which can be obtained by installing the
*build-essential*package. Normally, you can do this by typing the
following in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install build-essential

and in order to run the configure and autogen.sh files that come with many

sudo apt-get install automake

Finally, you will need
CheckInstall<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall>to safely
insert your program in your system:

sudo apt-get install checkinstall..."

This worked on some other frustrating installations, will try it on
chuck when time/energy permits.
