OK, noted. I was using a Ubuntu.com "cloud image" , perhaps that
has some build-essential stuff in it that a stock ubuntu-server image

Sure, but I doubt there are going to be that many people developing
the stylesheets without using TileMill - that's almost entirely the
point of the carto port in the first place. There may be a few techies
(like yourself. and I know Jochen hit similar problems) who are
concentrating on server-side kind of tasks and therefore don't need or
perhaps want a TileMill install, but the main aim here is to lower the
barrier to entry (or at least increase the fun level) for
cartographers, and there's a much, much bigger pool of TileMill-using
cartographers than there ever have been
Of course, every level of abstraction added will help some aspects of
the task, but add faff like this in other aspects!
