In reply to this post by GnuCash - Dev mailing list
I updated the dependency table while rewriting the Linux build instructions
basically from the README.dependecies files in each tagged release of
GnuCash, assuming these were up to date. There is a list with install
instructions for Linux also in the Linux build instructions which adds a few
libraries that may be incorporated in some Linux distros by default but not
in others ( or generally get loaded with other common software).
