Mark dealt with that.

What is "the development system"?  Ubuntu and Debian offer gigabytes of
packages that are intended for development, but no one would want all of
them at once.  That's why you have a package management system.  Use it to
install the development packages you need (which will be different from the
ones I need).

I suggest 'apt-get install build-essential'.  That gets you gcc, libc6-dev,
make, g++, and dpkg-dev.
