You should find my Ubuntu-packaged version of OpenSCAD in my PPA for
Ubuntu Lucid, in both 32bit and 64bit flavours. It's based on someone
elses work packaging OpenSCAD, and is a couple of months old now... but
should still work fine. If you need the absolute latest and greatest,
let me know and I'll see about creating a newer set of packages.
If you are running Debian I can get you a 64bit .deb for that, too, I
expect. BTW, if you can post more specific details of the "compiling is
hopeless" issue, it might help the OpenSCAD team to improve things in
