I found a KDE gui for the configure -> make -> make install routine, kconfigure. But, I did not try it out, since the project was last active in 2005. Is there a gui for the same for Ubuntu. I know that typing out a few lines is not a hassle, but having the option to use a gui instead wouldn't hurt.
