OK, don't know what we could be doing different in a radical enough way to blast through this - other than to work patiently on the issues, one at a time until there is progress.  I'm very glad to see that you haven't just given up.  We probably would not be successful to attempt to put out a "binary" release of anything either, for the same basic reasons you've already listed.

I run asterisk on a centos-5 system and run gnu radio on various versions if ubuntu 10 and 11.  It may simplify things to separate the two packages and there is certainly no need to shoehorn everything into a single machine/OS version.  The asterisk component is designed to communicate with the gnu radio components via UDP whether they're running in the same machine or not.  In general the repeater stuff tries to follow this rule, mostly successfully.

As previously mentioned, it might be easier to start with the CLI version. I don't know if the app_rpt stuff even uses the GUI.  There may be no benefit to having a GUI, not sure.

Yeah asterisk is a beast but it really shouldn't be THAT hard to compile.  Zaptel is necessary due to the "dummy" zap channel support that's used internally.  In addition this list isn't necessarily the right forum for problems compiling asterisk and/or app_rpt - but the problems might be trivial, so it wouldn't hurt to at least post a few more details here....
