Success!  I finally got a consistent install of beta version
gnupg-2.1.0 on a fresh version of Ubuntu 14.04 inside VirtualBox.
These steps work:
1.  Download, verify and unpack npth, libgpg-error, libgcrypt,
libksba, libassuan.
2.  Install each in order using the commands:  ./configure, make, sudo
make install, make check.
3.  sudo mv /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon
/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon.bak  (this is a hack to prevent gnome
from hijacking gnupg)
4.  sudo apt-get install libdb-dev
5.  sudo apt-get install libdb++-dev
6.  Install Openldap 2.4.39 using commands: ./configure, make depend,
make, sudo make install  (dont bother with the check, it is too long
and weird)
7.  sudo apt-get install gtk+-2.0
8.  Install pinentry-0.8.3 using step 2
9.  Download, verify and unpack gnupg-2.1.0, install using step 2
10.  The make check seems to hang on genkey1024.test (right after
detachm.test) but don't give up.  It actually took 20 minutes by my
watch on my HP Envy i5 3 GHz machine to complete this step, then
completed all tests successfully.

Now we Ubuntu users can play with elliptical curve crypto, google's
end-to-end encryption scheme, and also help Werner evaluate this beta
version.  Keeping it on VirtualBox is the ideal way to evaluate this.

Thanks for all the help and comments - Sandy
