Or, somewhat simpler:
Checkout kicad, kicad-doc & kicad-library into a directory.
Checkout the debian package source from here:
http://svn.flexserv.de/kicad/trunk/debian to the same directory.
Ideally modify the debian/changelog to give you a custom version number.
Run: fakeroot debian/rules binary
(control file lists the dependancies)
or better yet use pbuilder to build it (will take care of the
dependancies as well as doing the build in a nice clean environment).
Admittedly these are the instructions for debian, but since the
packages in Ubuntu are directly pulled from debian and rebuilt it
should be just the same.
