To begin with: You don't need doxygen when you're developing "only"
(i.e. you only need it if you want to publish the built SDK). In fact
you don't need to build the SDK/ODK at all (--disable-odk)

It only creates the api-documentation html from the sources. If you're
fine with reading the docs online or don't care about installing the
SDK from our download page to get the API-docs, then you don't need to
build it yourself.

I don't know the debian dependencies, but as most of the download in
your case is TeX, just leave that out. It only creates html, no
tex-documents and stuff that would require tex.

I.e. don't include doxygen-latex and the install will be much slimmer
- but as mentioned: No idea what package you have to install instead
of the meta-package. (just use --without-doxygen or --disable-odk)
