prereqs problem: 'libglut3-dev' and 'bjam' on Ubuntu 11.10

I am having trouble installing the latest python-ogre 1.7 on Ubuntu 11.10. I have been following the LinuxBuildV4 guide, but it fails after running "sh ./":

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'libglew1.6-dev' instead of 'libglew-dev'
Package bjam is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:

E: Unable to locate package libglut3-dev
E: Package 'bjam' has no installation candidate

I then installed libboost1.46-dev and freeglut3-dev (couldn't find libglut3-dev at all), but the same error occurs when running the prereq script again. I also didn't see any log.out file in the python-ogre folder.

Could someone point me in the right direction?

Just remove or comment out bjam/libglut3-dev in scripts/

Thanks, I commented it out and it seems fine.
