You can also try the `apt-get build-dep` command with the following
Debian packages:

You should only require the last file in that list to compile gvim.

This is probably a *big* part of the reason why you can't compile gvim.
In order to compile GVIM, it was my understanding that you needed to use
some sort of GUI flag when executing the ./configuration step.  Try
running the following command in the future when compiling vim:

    ./configure --help | grep GUI

This will show you all of the GUI-related flags that you need to
consider when compiling gvim.
