First do you really need the latest beta?

If so you need to install the build environment in ubuntu. I think
sudo apt-get install  build-essential
Should take care of that. Then you need jam
sudo apt-get install  jam
I'm not sure what other packages you need, but I had to install this
 apt-get install x11proto-scrnsaver-dev libxss-dev libxxf86vm-dev
libxext-dev libxdmcp-dev

For compiling create a folder and unzip the source. Fix the two files
as described by Udo. Then in the root of the folder type created above
sh ./makeall.ks
Check for errors. If so try to install the missing packages.
If none, type
sh ./makepackagebin.ksh

You will end up with a file bin.zip. Install this as normal.
Of course I can send you my bin.zip if you have problems.
