Just have a look at the existing mapguide install script.
We've kept the old script and just disabled it in recent releases since
it wasn't working.

Basically each major app has a bash shell script, if available it should
just do apt-get install package. But when debs are not available you
have to script the download, compile/setup and install.

If possible the best plan of attack is to get a deb package built, on
the ubuntugis ppa.
