RE:  undefined symbol: ajSeqdbInit
While not an expert at all, on Emboss code,
this type of error is typically due to (Emboss) binaries Not Yet
being compiled with the newer linux-header resources.  Pending that
compilation by the Emboss maintenance team, if you run the compile
from Emboss source code on your own  Ubuntu 10.10 system, all will
likely be  OK.

Check if linux-headers are installed on your System with:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

You could also just reinstall and boot under the last kernel supporting Emboss.
Typically linux is backward compatible to prior kernels, for a
considerable period.
Just search out the prior linux-image package at: http://packages.ubuntu.com
