way to find dependencies from source code?


Is there a way to find the dependencies from the source code in the directory produced by the tarball? All I do till now is ./configure, see the missing lib etc, install it, again ./configure, see missing lib, install it, and so on. Is there a way to have all the missing dependencies before configuring the program for the system, maybe with a proper configure flag? But ./configure -h did not show anything that could help.

thanks a lot,
babagau

... And then some have a section "Prerequisites" in the online documentation.

For the "10,000" Ubuntu sources, you have a dependency list, example ..
http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/maverick/audacious


Or you can use the command : apt-get build-dep <source-name>

thank you very much, the prerequisites (build-depends) at the packages webpage is a fine solution.
