On debian (so probably also on ubuntu) the package you're after is the 
development one:


(which will probably also pull some other stuff in..)

On debian (and ubuntu) when tracking foo dependency for compiling you're 
usually after foo-dev or most often libfoo-dev but as the example above 
shows the name of the library/development package can be rather 
exotic/different compared to the package name.. :)

Another nice one is apt-get build-deb for packages which are already in 
the repositories but you'd like to compile yourself for some reason.
