We can't help without seeing the full output of your build log.

What is your ENTIRE build procedure? With logs please.
As you wish! I've attached a build log from a clean repo. It starts with 'git clone', and ends with the output of 'scons check'
(see attachment: "gpsd-build.txt")

If you can't build it, you certainly can't run it! First things first.
Haha, yea, fair enough. Anyway, I'm just including it for context-- to let you know what else I've tried.

timeservice=yes is for Raspberry Pi HATs. Are you running on a Raspberry Pi?
In that case, what's the "default" flags to enable PPS + shm + time reporting?
( It definitely wasn't available in the apt-get version, nor in the vanilla builds, without 'timeservice' )
The computer we're using is a relatively standard x86_64 embedded / industrial computer:
Our Ubuntu installation is an otherwise normal setup.
FWIW, other environment things that may or may not matter:
