Building from Source

On a Alix (32bit HW) with a Voyage V0.10 (Debian derevative) I am 
following this guide:

tar zxvf freeradius-<version>.tar.gz
su - root
make install

(It misses you have to change dir, but I can figure that out :)

When i (as root) type make, I end up with this message:

checking for _talloc in -ltalloc in /usr/local/lib... no
checking for _talloc in -ltalloc in /opt/lib... no
configure: WARNING: talloc library not found. Use 
configure: error: FreeRADIUS requires libtalloc

So I try to install libtalloc

# apt-get install libtalloc
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libtalloc

Same thing happens when I try: # apt-get install libtallocl

Can anybode tell my what the lib is called so I can install it.

(Presuming the problem is that simple)
