I decided to post here for everyone's benefit, a script to compile Kodi from GIT, I found it in the forums but needed updating (mostly dependencies). I have no experience or desire to support the script.
If you use it and find errors in the script logic, let me know what errors or logic and I will try to update it.
If something goes wrong please provide full config.logs and pastebins of the output of the errors or issues so I can try to help, else I cant help at all.
sudo pastebinit < /home/setup/kodi-git/config.log
- Loads of updates and new/improved versions now in gist @ github.
- Updated to V15.x Isengard's depends/removed dead depends

This is released with no warranty of any kind and by using it, you assume responsibility for the benefits and damages to your system.
Most of all, you should backup your system before using it.
To use you should "NOT" login as root (unless you know what your doing) execute script with sudo
These should provide all required dependencies but given nature of master these can change at any time without notice. simply add them to the DEPS line and re-run script with the option you require, script checks for any missing dependencies on DEPS variable it will install any you added there at any stage via the automatic check it does before compiling anything at various stages via CHECK_DEPS() function.
libgnutls-dev Is not a required dependency, as such is not here, but some distros not Ubuntu may require it due to way they package their stuff if you need it install it manually or add it to DEPS line as explained above.
If you dont install libnfs1-dev via ppa run sudo ./gcs.sh libnfs previous to running sudo ./gcs.sh compile. Minimum required is 1.3.0 but the script compiles 1.8.0 at time of writing, it performs slightly faster and has many bug fixes.
NVIDIA ONLY - no pulseaudio (if you use desktop you going to need it)
wget https://gist.github.com/un1versal/88db95a67f69a072ef9a/raw -O ~/gcs.sh
INTEL ONLY - no pulseaudio (if you use desktop you going to need it)
wget https://gist.github.com/un1versal/bb410bd76d0cc7fb7524/raw -O ~/gcs.sh
chmod 755 gcs.sh
sudo ./gcs.sh compile (for first run)
sudo ./gcs.sh update (everytime after)
Configure options (list for options you may want to enable or disable on the ./configure line
Default=yes ( meaning that by default this is enabled even if not defined in ./configure)
Default=no ( meaning the opposite of the above )
Default=auto ( meaning if a library is installed and detected it will be enabled otherwise if not detected it is not enabled )
Default is enabled ( meaning the option is enabled Note: usually it is dependent on a library being installed, if it is not, the compile will fail )
Some options dont have either of the yes/no/auto When in doubt look at was being enabled or disabled.
Options that can be enabled can usually also be disabled.

F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions
Q - The script says it only INTEL compatible what do I do?
A - You downloaded wrong script for your system, SYS_CHECK() prevents you from running wrong script and end up with broken compile.
Q - The script says it only NVIDIA compatible what do I do?
A - See above answer.
Q - Do you have AMD GPU compile scripts or will you make one?
A - Never. No, Don't even bother asking, I refuse. Intel script was already some exception made for friends. In order to be my friend you need to buy me beer and bacon.
Q - I had some error, or script failed what do I do?
A - If something goes wrong please provide full config.logs and pastebins of the output of the errors or issues so I can try to help, else I cant help at all.
