Good news,

I managed to get the first functional build with the new setup:


Some known new issues:
1. OTB and Monteverdi failed to build under the new PPA
2. pgRouting is not ready yet for PG 9.3
3. pgAdmin3 throws an error about PG 9.3

Please test your application with this build and let me know if you find 
issues. Also going through the build logs would be also valuable.

It would be nice to fix those issues before alpha3.
