i know nothing about linux but i do this compilation chore regularly, the last
time yesterday or the day before.  i use xubuntu which does not have some stuff
that is normal or expected, apparently.  here is a list i made the last time, as
i was tired of not having it down in one place, of the stuff listed as needed,
the versions i installed using synaptic, and some stuff not listed that was
needed;

libboost-dev            libboost1.55-dev
libboost-date-time-dev  libboost-date-time1.55-dev
libboost-thread-dev     libboost-thread1.55-dev
zlib1g-dev              zlib1g-dev
libpng12-dev            libpng12-dev
libjpeg8-dev            libjpeg8-dev
libtiff5-dev            libtiff5-dev
libopenexr-dev          libopenexr-dev

g++-4.8                 g++ version 4:4.8.2-1ubuntu6
autoconf                autoconf version 2.69-6
automake                (already had Automake 1.14)
