Ubuntu 14.04: compile CPUMiner / minerd (forked by LucasJones & Wolf) for Monero mining

To CPU mine Monero in a moneropool it is suggested to use cpuminer called minerd. To compile it on Ubuntu 14:04 or later, the following dependencies are required:

sudo apt-get install build-essential autotools-dev autoconf libcurl3 libcurl4-gnutls-dev
Example use: minerd -a cryptonight -o stratum+tcp:// -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p x

Once you start mining using moneropool, you can check your status at anytime on their front page using your xmr address:
Just remember that their pending balance updates after a while. For me it took maybe 1-2h before I saw any pending balance after I had started mining. Hash rate updates very quickly though.

Just in case you get the error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.

it means that you haven't install libcurl4-gnutls-dev.
