data dropped when upgrading from 1.8.9 to 2.2

I used gnucash for quite a while on FreeBSD, using version 1.8.9.
I'm trying to upgrade to the current version, but it seems to drop a load
of my data when importing the old accounts file.
I wanted to see if I could work out why, but I can't manage to compile
gnucash from source :-(
I've just downloaded a vanilla Ubuntu ("heron", I think), but I can't get
it to compile.
I (think I) have followed all the instructions at
and I've installed all the packages I can find which seem to be possibly
Currently ./configure fails the following error:
Unknown library `print`
which is caused by running: "gnome-config --libs print"
I've got several libgnomeprint libraries installed:
$ dpkg --get-selections | grep print
... but none of them seem to provide "print" libraries to gnome-config.
So my questions are:
1) Why does 2.2.4 drop loads of my transactions from a 1.8.9 version
2) How do I build gnucash from source on ubuntu "heron"?
Many thanks in advance,
