I realize now that you are talking about jhbuild, not packaged Sugar.

distro side - it might make sense to track upstream how to make the 
non-packaged tool work in various odd/broken environments).

I must admit that I have little sympathy for Ubuntu when it breaks due 
to "running ahead" of Debian. As I consider to be the case here.
