My bad.

I can personally confirm that 8.0rc5 builds cleanly and passes the 
regression tests under Ubuntu i386 (using the current Ubuntu 5.04/hoary 
development release, now in version freeze). I can't personally confirm 
the other architectures or the Ubuntu 4.10/warty release (although the 
results should be identical to Debian).

The install docs require some interpretation, as by default under Ubuntu 
root's password is disabled and you need to use sudo for various steps. 
  I don't think this is a problem, as naive Ubuntu users will generally 
be using the click'n'drool pacakge manager.
