You'll need at least a compiler. Gcc and Make are available in the gcc1.dsl package.
GNU-utils is likely going to be needed in some cases, since the busybox tools are quite limited.
For building kernel modules, you'll need the headers for the appropriate kernel.
For building practically anything requiring X, you'll need the xfree86 headers.
Everything listed above is, as far as I know, available from the myDSL repository. For building everything else, it all depends on the application. Some apps have few dependencies, some apps have many. Usually the app's documentation will tell you which dev libraries are needed for the compile.
