Unfortunately I don't have a list of dependencies,
but it would be nice if you could collect them on the way,
so that we could put it on the web-page...

For this one:
aptitude install libx11-dev
should help.

But there will be more. Most likely:
aptitude install kdelibs4-dev  libgphoto2-dev libjasper-dev  libjpeg62-dev
liblcms1-dev libqt3-mt-dev libpng12-dev  libtiff4-dev automake  autoconf

HTH a bit,
