You probably need a development version of several packages if you are
going to compile from a tarball. You likely can NOT build such from wha you

Get into yast and install ALL the prerequisites. For some non-standard
sorts of things you have to google up the development packages if you can't
find them either on your install media or on the opensuse mirrors/
