To name those usually not present on the system:
flex bison expat-devel zlib-devel python-devel texinfo
Only required when having modified files that are used as input for
generation, I tend to make a tarball with freshly regenerated files
and push that to the host I wish to test. So no need for any of that
on the build platform.
for testsuite at least:
dejagnu gcc-gfortran gcc-java gcc-objc prelink fpc gcc-gnat glibc-static valgrind
And tcl. The testsuite is a bit awkward to get up at times, fully agree there.
