First off I notice that you didn't do an install. I'd recommend that so
all the support files are available. This should do the trick:

sudo make install

Then use ./gnubg to launch. Same thing happen?

Assuming you pulled out the head revision from source control what you
are experiencing is something I haven't seen before. The fact you don't
get the copyright notice with gnubg --tty is odd in itself. What happens
if you redo it doing:

make clean
./configure --without-gtk

I'm just curious whether this is a GTK problem. If I get a chance I'll
dig up my old Ubuntu 14.04. One other thing I recommend is to make sure
all the build dependencies are met. You should be able to do that with:

sudo apt-get build-dep gnubg
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

The second line makes sure you have the dependency for random.org to
function properly as a dice source.

Then do:

make clean
sudo make install

and then run ./gnubg
