I suppose that is it -- unfortunately there is *zero info* on
repositories on the gnewsense site!  

But this is based on ubuntu 8.04 right, so I can guess I can just
import packages from there.   Altho that seems to defeat the
purpose somewhat.

I doubt that is the problem -- just doing "apt search dev" turns up
next to nothing.  If by "hard to find" you mean, not listed or
unavailable, I guess hard it will be.

Never had any problems like this on any other debian derived system I
have worked on, and there have been a few.  I'm a programmer and do a
lot of source building, never had any problem finding dev libs with
apt.  At all.
