gcc (and libstdc++)
zlib and zlib-devel

They're a mix Debian and RHEL names.

"libncurses-devel" looks like a combination of "libncurses5-dev" in
Debian and "ncurses-devel" in RHEL.

"zlib-devel" is the RHEL name.

"openssl-devel" is the RHEL name.

"libudev-dev" is the Debian name; "libudev-devel" was the RHEL 6 name
and "systemd-devel" is the RHEL 8 name.


apt-get install cvs libncurses5-dev gcc g++ zlib1g-dev zlib1g
libssl-dev libudev-dev

for Debian.

If you were to add a RHEL para, the equivalent for RHEL 8 (and 7) is

yum install cvs ncurses-devel gcc gcc-c++ zlib-devel zlib
openssl-devel systemd-devel
