What you really want to get a basic build environment is:

sudo apt-get install build-essential

To obtain all required libraries etc for building a particular app, if 
Ubuntu happens to package that app, you can just run:

sudo apt-get build-dep postgresql

In most cases Ubuntu builds the most complete and generic configuration 
of the app so that'll get you what you need.
