I think Ubuntu Gutsy didn't packed the last kdrive tree with evdev. What 
you'll have to do is:
$ git clone git://
$ cd xserver
$ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/something/lib/pkgconfig ./ 
--prefix=/opt/something --enable-kdrive --enable-xephyr
$ make
$ sudo make install

If something gets wrong read carefully here [0].
