How much experience with Linux have you got?
Have you ever compiled anything from source?
Do you have IRC? (If so, go to themanaworld.freenode.net, I am there and will try to help you)

I don't use ubuntu. If you don't like the following, please, ask some Ubuntu guru.

1. install gcc (probably you already have it)
2. install SDL and all SDL_... libraries together with 'dev' packages (I don't know if Ubuntu works in tthis way, but both Linux distributions I've ever tried had every library divided into two packages: one with shared libraries and another one with headers)
3. download guichan from http://guichan.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Downloads and compile it according the instructions which you can find inside the package (file)
4. install physfs (I've read on it's web that ubuntu provides packages)
5. Now you should have all libraries necessary to compile TMW. Do it.

Is this enough? If not, tell me, what should I deeper explain or so...

um... then please think about removing the entry before you upgrade your next time.
