The dependencies have to be installed just like your targeted software.

What software are you talking about?

Generally, if you are compiling from source, you environment variables should be telling the compilier where libraries and the like are (hence resolving dependencies). It is possible that you will have to tell configure where something is, but unusual. It really would help to know more about what you are doing.

Mostly, the programs, libraries or whatever you are installing will take care of "where to put" themselves, (as the programmers of that software or packages see fit).

If you've downloaded .deb files, you can simply use:

Code:
dpkg -i <packagename>
Everything is taken care of during the installation of the package.

If you've downloaded binaries in the form of tar.gz files, then all you would do is extract the content of the tar.gz file, then:

Code:
 sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install
Unless you want to change something, everything is taken care of during install.


Otherwise, if you KNOW the NAME of the package, it's always easiest to do:

Code:
sudo apt-get install <package name>
And again everything is taken care of (including the downloading). All you need to do is make yourself a cup of tea.
