Follow the instructions to build packages. Then all dependencies
get pulled in for you. And you get nice packages rather than files
spread around the system.

If you really want to roll your own, you can choose what other
packages are installed depending on the features you want, so it's
not like there is a list of package dependencies. The configure
stage will stop if there's something really required.

The whole lot is listed in the package control file.
