The answer is very simple: because you are building it incorrectly.  We 
can provide you with the answers, but we can't give you the software 
development skills needed to correctly use the answers.

If you're unable to recognize which packages provide development headers 
for common system libraries, that would be a sign your skill level is 
not up to this task.

This isn't to say you shouldn't learn.  Learning is good, even 
essential!  It's only to say the problem isn't with GnuPG.
