I noticed the list of prerequisite packages for debian-world systems,

gcc (and libstdc++)
zlib and zlib-devel
They're a mix Debian and RHEL names.
I always begin with CentOS-minimal, and install only these via yum:
This minimal set is the basis for the bulk builds I alluded to in my
pkgsrc provides everything else for itself.
The fewer Linux-native packages are installed, the fewer leakage issues
you'll have building in pkgsrc.
On systems where I have to install a lot of software from yum, I mostly
use binary packages from my bulk builds (done in a pristine minimal
chroot) rather than build from source and risk leakage-related
failures. Leakage only tends to occur during build. The use of rpath
mostly protects against it at run-time.
