I wouldn't say either is easier - in both cases you'll have to install all the required packages. The only thing I'd note about Ubuntu is that there is the very useful Ubuntu Packages Search reference site. If you run into a configure or compilation error regarding missing files, the error will in most cases list the file name. You can use the Search the contents of packages interface at the Ubuntu Packages Search site to find the package that provides that file. It's possible RedHat provide a similar interface.
