Hi, I once also encountered some problem in install, but the problem can
be solved if you look deeper at the error message. Most likely, your
operating system lack some packages: for example:
can not find LibMagic---sudo apt-get install libmagic-dev
can not find ZLIB--sudo apt-get install libz-dev
can not find BISON--sudo apt-get install bison
can not find FLEX--sudo apt-get install flex
can not find OpenSSL--sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
can not find SWIG--sudo apt-get install swig
can not find PathonDev--sudo apt-get install python-dev

Good luck
