I would love to but I had not taken notes at the time. I will try to explain what I remember. First of all, I was doing that in a pretty vanilla install of trusty, as I had not set yet a complete development environment.
I did as explained there in the Ubuntu section, but with updated libs in some cases as if I remember well it is now libtiff5-dev. I built my own bullet which compiled smoothly.
Then when compiling freeorion, I got diffrent pauses and had to install different libs. Each one I identified in the logs but the message I mostly remember is "pthreads not found" because I realized that I had quite some crucial libs missing. So on that point on I went on updating all my libc, c++, python addons dev libs and graphic libs. So I installed probably much more that was specifically required by freeorion, so that I could also compile my other favorite software.
After a last ldconfig, "rm CMake.cache", "make clean" && make, the binary was there neat and clean, ready for a "make install" (I think this obvious step is also missing in the page) and it installed perfectly under /usr/local and is running well.
I am sorry not being able to be acurrate and specific. I will check if some of the logs survived some of my make clean, but now the needed libraries are installed (among others) and it will be difficult to reproduce each step.
