Actually, I was working on the same thing, on Ubuntu server 12.04.

Starting with a clean install, this works:

# Install prerequisites
sudo apt-get install git
sudo apt-get install autoconf make libtool

# Install libdivecomputer
git clone git://
cd libdivecomputer
autoreconf --install
sudo make install

After that, you can build subsurface by doing:

# Install prerequisites
sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libxml2-dev libgtk2.0-dev
libgconf2-dev libxslt1-dev

# Compile for linux
git clone git://
cd subsurface
sudo make install

I'm now trying to build windows binaries using mingw. Not too successfully. :)
