Steven, no point in putting yourself through all that pain!  BibleTime is 
available in Ubuntu form!!  Check your Synaptic Package Manager!!  You may 
have to add the repository for the current updates however, it is: 

deb hardy main

added to your "third-party software" and the maintainer is quite easy to talk 
to!  Fixed a minor bug for me in less than two hours!!
