They'll both probably be pulled in as dependencies. Nautilus is a dependencies of Control Center and Eel is a dependency of Nautilus. You can still reinstall them from source and everything will work...unless, of course, your distro applies patches to GNOME that make them incompatible with vanilla sources.

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables EEL_CFLAGS
and EEL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
These are installed via synaptic... runnig debian sid && gnome 2.20

Because you only installed the runtime files, not the development files. You need to install the packages that end in -dev or -devel or whatever for each of the missing dependencies.
