|-No special configure options are needed for most linux|
|-distributions. Exceptions are listed below:|
|+There are a wide variety of different Linux distributions with a lot|
|+of variation in what packages are installed by default and what their|
|+names are. Some common ones have dependencies described below.|
|+* Debian and derived distributions like Ubuntu split libraries up from|
|+ the other files needed to compile code using them. You'll need to|
|+ install at a minimum the following packages:|
|+ | build-essentials libpcre3-dev libssl-dev|
|+ Installing libevent-dev is highly recommended as well, but not|
|+ required. If you want to use SQL, you'll also need the appropriate|
|+ -dev package, like libsqlite3-dev.|
|+* For arch, the mandatory packages are:|
|+ | pcre openssl|
|+ and highly recommended libevent. Some or all of these might already|
|+ be present as part of a base install.|
