Are you using the trunk, or the 2.0.3 tag from svn?

Interesting, that just means that for some reason the hash check to
confirm the download failed.
cd /tmp/build_deegree
wget -c

and then rerun the deegree script in the bin folder
sudo ./install_deegree.sh

Ah there's an error on ln 92 of install_postgis.sh, it should read:
sudo -u $USER_NAME createdb -E UTF8 template_postgis
no -T, that was a mistake

To be expected, setting the background and screen stretch are coded for
XFCE in this particular case. Take a look in the install_desktop. These
steps can be done by hand and commented out.
ln 34-40
