if header files are missing, you need *-dev.deb packages.
On most linux systems developer (headers *.h and static libs *.a)
ending in -dev and runtime (dynamic libs *.so) packages are separate.
Most of these package names will start with "lib", e.g. libjackxxx and
libjackxxx-dev or libsndfilexxx(-dev), but some may also have other
names like rtaudioxxx(-dev) etc.

The used libraries should be documented, but keep in mind to also
install the corresponding  -dev packages when compiling yourself.
