Hi Larry and all,

I'm just lurking here (I haven't run JNOS for several years) but  
Ubuntu, being a single-CD distribution, cannot fit all the tools into  
the disk.  To get the basic stuff needed for compilation there is a  
'build-essential' package which can be installed with apt-get or  
synaptic.  It is a dummy package depending on gcc, make and a few  
others.  JNOS may require additional tools and/or libraries, but that  
will be a start.
