(Just going on intuition here, not using debian myself, and never having 
compiled pdp...)


"This package provides the shared libraries required to run programs 
compiled with GNU GSL. To compile your own programs you also need to 
install libgsl0-dev"


If you look at the list of files you will see .../include/gsl/gsl_block.h

There should be some way in $(distribution)'s package manager to find 
out which package provides a given file, otherwise there is the internet 
and its fine search engines.

(I use gentoo, but that seems to have "equery belongs existingfile => 
package" but not "equery provides missingfile => package")
