As you can see, some of the dependencies failed to install:

Can you please try:

sudo dpkg -i builddir/unity8-build-deps_7.84+14.04.20140324.4-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

And say which dependencies broke?

Thanks to your guidance I learned something and was able to solve the issue. I know you guys are very busy, and so I appreciate this very much.

What I did was I removed libunity-api0 with synaptic, which was the file causing the dependency issue, and installed the specific one it asked for from here:

using the following command from the terminal

sudo dpkg -i libunity-api0_7.80.5+14.04.20140304-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb

./build now seems to be coming along finely.
