If you're using Lubuntu, you probably just want to install the package via
apt-get: "apt-get install gnupg" (or gnupg2 for gpg2).  If its default
packages are similar to ubuntu, GPG1 should be installed by default.

If you really want to install from source, you'll need a C compiler
installed along with all the various dependencies.  The build-essential
package should get you started, but you might still need more.
