Hmm, no idea.
Is tightvnc gpl?  If so, maybe you should mail the person who packaged
it for LP and tell them to provide you with full sources, including
any scripts used to build the package.  Regardless of whether they
used a script, they should at least have the configure and other such
options documented and be able to provide those to you.
