Nonssense. What is hard on "No doxygen ther". to "apt-get install doxygen"?
Right, nothing.

If there's actual build errors you're right, but not for such trivialities
which can be solved by actually reading the error message and installing
the missing package.

(and you implicitely said "I want the full SDK", otherwise you'd have
configure'd appropriately)
