What's the command and error?

Inside the tar file is readme.txt and section 7 details some of the things you'll want to have installed, e.g. libpng. And because you want to build a program that uses them, rather than just running that program, you often need a `development' version of the package, e.g. libpng-dev, given how Debian partition things into packages.
