as root:

apt-get install tk8.4-dev tcl8.4-dev

Also, you can do:

apt-get install synaptic 

which is an ok GUI frontend to apt.

BTW, on debian you can also do the following:

apt-get install puredata gem pd-externals pd-zexy

and you will have a reasonably thorough PD.  PD depends on libjack so
the installer may want to install a few other things.

What the installer will not do, however, is mess with your .pdrc so
you will have to tell pd where to look for the libs (it all gets
installed in /usr/lib/pd/extra)
