Okay, well I think I'll be leaving this alone until my next round of
quarterly recording efforts, so perhaps it will be in mainline apt by
then (I'm on Lubuntu 14.04 FYI), or perhaps I'll do as you say and add
that apt repo.

Also FYI, the default Apache LedgerSMB config is a little broken.
You're probably aware that Debian-esque installs do things a bit
differently, i.e. with conf-available/ and conf-enabled/ to be managed
by a2enconf et al. Well, ledgersmb-httpd.conf was installed into
conf.d/ - no biggie, just copied it across to conf-available. Also,
CGI wasn't properly configured - the .pl file attempts to download
instead of running. Some things that would smooth the first time
