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.
* SuSE 9.X reportedly needs CFLAGS=-D__USE_POSIX
