You need to install the g++ package. This error indicates that you don't
have the C++ compiler installed.  On Ubuntu (5.04 or 5.10) you'll also
need to install libqt-mt-dev (which will install a set of dependencies
too).  In order to get things like database access working, you'll need
to install the dev packages for whichever database you want.  I can
probably knock up a list of them if you want it.  I have successfully
compiled gambas on both Ubuntu 5.04 and 5.10.  I would expect Kubuntu
to be the same since the underlying system is identical (things like qt
would already be installed since KDE uses it).

To install any of the above, either do 

sudo apt-get install <package name>

from the command line or use synaptic to search for, mark and install
