Why do you need to build it your self? Are you trying to apply a patch?

The easiest way would be to just build the debian binary package as
you already are using the Ubuntu source package.

sudo apt-get build-dep gdm

dget -ux https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/intrepid/+source/gdm/2.20.8-0ubuntu3/+files/gdm_2.20.8-0ubuntu3.dsc

cd gdm-2.20.8


cd ..

sudo dpkg -i  gdm_2.20.8-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
