I'd like to install UltraStar Deluxe in Ubuntu 11.10. On the project homepage and in this PPA there are some packages, but they seem to be for an older release of Ubuntu, because when I try to install them, I get complaints about missing dependencies (packages that are no longer available in the 11.10 repositories):

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ultrastar-deluxe:
 ultrastar-deluxe depends on libavcodec52 (>= 4:0.6-1~) | libavcodec-extra-52 (>= 4:0.6-1~); however:
  Package libavcodec52 is not installed.
  Package libavcodec-extra-52 is not installed.
 ultrastar-deluxe depends on libavformat52 (>= 4:0.6-1~) | libavformat-extra-52 (>= 4:0.6-1~); however:
  Package libavformat52 is not installed.
  Package libavformat-extra-52 is not installed.
 ultrastar-deluxe depends on libavutil50 (>= 4:0.6-1~) | libavutil-extra-50 (>= 4:0.6-1~); however:
  Package libavutil50 is not installed.
  Package libavutil-extra-50 is not installed.
 ultrastar-deluxe depends on libprojectm2; however:
  Package libprojectm2 is not installed.
 ultrastar-deluxe depends on libswscale0 (>= 4:0.6-1~) | libswscale-extra-0 (>= 4:0.6-1~); however:
  Package libswscale0 is not installed.
  Package libswscale-extra-0 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing ultrastar-deluxe (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

Apart from compiling the program myself and/or repackaging the software, is there a way I can install UltraStar Deluxe in Ubuntu 11.10?

It's no optimal solution, but you can manually install the dependencies by grabbing the needed packages from Launchpad.
