Kubuntu dev packages to build Python

List of all the additional packages needed for a full build of the optional Python modules in the 2.x standard library on Kubuntu 9.10:

libssl-dev (OpenSSL integration)
libreadline-dev (readline module integration)
libgdbm-dev (a DBM backend)
tk-dev (also brings in TCL via dependencies)
tk-tile (extra bit of tk needed for some of the TTK GUI functionality)
libsqlite3-dev (SQLite3 integration)
libdb4.7-dev (BSDDB integration)

(at least one of those brings in the necessary zlib build dependencies as well - probably SSL dev)

Mostly for my own reference, but if it proves useful to somebody else via a search engine, cool :)
