You need to make your operating system POSIX-conformant. I make fairly
liberal use of some standard utilities in the build process including
and |expr
amongst others. A POSIX-conformant operating system is a fairly minimal
expectation for a build environment. (It is not as though the build
process is requiring, for example, the Bourne Again shell and its
non-POSIX extensions for building from source on host operating systems;
as some softwares do.) The source package page
<> notes the
*non*-standard tools that are needed.

This information is pre-encoded in the |package/debian/control| file
that I supply for Debian Linux, to be automatically checked by
|dpkg-buildpackage|. (There's no equivalent list that I supply for the
BSDs; but it is also the case that the BSDs provide nearly all of this
stuff, including the non-POSIX |install| tool, out of the box, in
base.) If you are building on a different Linux operating system, that
is a good hint, with two caveats: Your Linux operating system won't
necessarily package things up the same way as Debian or have the same
package dependency tree, and Debian mandates a group of tools as
standard without their needing to be mentioned in a
|package/debian/control| file
Furthermore: Thomas Caravia has already worked out the build
requirements for Arch Linux in terms of pre-requisite Arch packages, and
the doco for Archnosh is a further source of clues for building on other
Linux operating systems.
