For most Linux distributions you can probably just install packages for the various required and optional support libraries, including the developer packages, but I suspect trying to enumerate the right packages for particular releases of particular distributions would be too much work.  *BSD might be similar, with their various ports/packages databases.  That leaves the usual commercial-UNIX suspects - Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, and various end-of-lifed UN*Xes such as Tru64 UNIX.)
