You're missing some of Debian's development packages.  Check out
<http://www.debian.org/Packages/>; on the bottom of the page is a form
where you can enter a filename and look up the package that contains
it.  IIRC, the headers listed above are in libxaw7-dev for stable, but
check to be sure.  The package name may also be different if you're
running testing or unstable.

Also: you'll need libreadline-dev installed in order to do the .zo phase
of setup-plt.
