I have attempted to compile Kivy on a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit using easy_install as per the documentation. Unfortunately the build fails with multiple gcc incompatible type errors.
You may find the compiler output here:
Any help will be appreciated.
It's a Cython bug. We already merged a fix for it, but it would be better if Cython fix it :/
In the meantime, use the Kivy master from github, or use Cython 0.17.1 (not 0.17.2).
eavc: Feel free to use the packages built in our PPA ;)

As a reference for anyone who found this page because easy_install failed on Ubuntu:
sudo easy_install kivy
...some work is done, then a Cython error...
Here's the solution that worked for me (on Ubuntu 12.04 AMD64):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kivy-team/kivy
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-kivy
