Build-essentials can be dealth with in apt configuration, just add put 
Suse-relevant entries to the config option. 
APT::Build-Essential {"rpm-build";}; in apt.conf is a good start :)

As for task-packages .. they kinda suck :-/ IIRC Debian no longer uses 
them but something called "tasksel" and I've been using a comps.xml 
(RH-thingy) based solution using Lua-scripts which looks like this:

address@hidden pmatilai]# apt-cache showgroups|grep -v support
sql-server (SQL Database Server)
dialup (Dialup Networking Support)
smb-server (Windows File Server)
core (Core)
base (Base)
kernel-development (Kernel Development)
server-cfg (Server Configuration Tools)
printing (Printing Support)
system-tools (System Tools)
address@hidden pmatilai]# apt-get groupinstall sql-server
Finding packages belonging to group(s)  sql-server...
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
   mysql (3.23.58-1.9)
   mysql-server (3.23.58-1.9)
   perl-DBD-MySQL (2.1021-3)

The names are parsed from comps.xml which holds the group names and their 
contents and only the contents are installed, no empty metapackages 
involved. Works very nicely but there's no way currently to hook that with 
Synaptic :( 

Does tasksel on Debian somehow hook up into Synaptic, or in other words,
do the tasksel tasks show up in Synaptic on Debian? Any pointers to how
that works would be appreciated... as would ideas/discussion how to make
it possible to hook my lua-comps.xml system into Synaptic for that matter
