Install the following package dependencies first (Debian/Ubuntu based distros):

sudo apt-get install build-essential libc6-dev \
                     qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libqt4-network git \
                     libqt4-svg libqtcore4 libqtgui4 \
                     libldap2-dev libssh-dev libxpm-dev libcups2-dev \
                     libgcc1 libldap-2.4-2 libssh-4 libstdc++6 libx11-dev
