Generally, to get them, each time you get an error - like "Fredfile" is missing" - look for "fredfile" in synaptic and install the "...-dev" version.
For pcmanfm I had to install the "libfm-1.0" (source is at the same link as the pcmanfm source), and (edit) "intltool" thru synaptic.
It's not that I've never compiled anything; it's that I've tried and failed, every time. It's all too messy for me.
Does the upgrade fix the problems?

Description-en: installation tracker
CheckInstall keeps track of all the files created or
modified by your installation script ("make install"
"make install_modules", "setup", etc), builds a
standard binary package and installs it in your
system giving you the ability to uninstall it with your
distribution's standard package management utilities.
