It occurs to me that perhaps the safest thing to do would be to 
install the source for Evolution 10.3.whatever from the Ubuntu 
repository, then look around here to find out what flag it is you 
need to set to tell Evolution to please use Bogofilter, then build.

please do not take this as an expertise guidance, it's just an idea 
how to make things easier for you.

I agree with you to use your distribution's package as the starter. 
Better to not get into a dependency hell. Install necessary 
development packages, like if you'd like to build whole evolution, 
together with the evolution's itself development package. Do not 
install any source packages.

The trick is that the bogofilter module is only a module, just few KB 
binary plus some GSettings/GConf definitions (which are always 
installed) and nothing else. No need to compile evolution for it, if 
you can use the development packages.

Let's say your bogofilter can be run as:
and there exists a file

It's possible that your version of evolution has a version number in 
the folder names, just check it.

Download evolution-bogofilter.c from [1] and save it anywhere in your 
system, just that you'll find it. Then compile it:

   $ gcc -shared -fPIC -DPIC evolution-bogofilter.c \
        -DG_LOG_DOMAIN=\"evolution-bogofilter\" \
        -DGETTEXT_PACKAGE=\"evolution\" \
        -DWELCOME_MESSAGE=\"/usr/share/evolution/default/C/mail/local/Inbox\" \
        -DBOGOFILTER_COMMAND=\"/usr/bin/bogofilter\" \
        `pkg-config --cflags --libs evolution-mail-3.0` \
        -Wl,--no-undefined -Wl,--export-dynamic -Wl,-soname \
        -Wl, \
        -o `pkg-config --variable=moduledir evolution-shell-3.0`/

If everything will go smoothly you might get it. Start evolution and 
you should see Bogofilter settings in Edit->Preferences->Mail 
Preferences->Junk tab.

Please note that this is not an official way of doing things, thus it 
might be possible that something will go wrong. If it does, then 
delete from evolution's module directory [2].

    You said you use 3.10. If you use a different version, then pick a different branch.

[2] It's the result of the below command,
    can be something like /usr/lib/evolution/modules

    $ pkg-config --variable=moduledir evolution-shell-3.0
