The packages you need should be listed on the "Compiling" page in the
manual and for Ubuntu should be available via apt-get. Did I miss

Just so everyone is clear, libreadline is not and will not be a dependency
in the next release. An unused Lua source file accidentally picked up by
the compiler needs it, but that Lua file is never linked into ta and will
be removed completely.
