The gcc-with-libs mydsl extension is pretty much essential for any of the "configure, make, make install" types of source packages. This extension provides many of the standard headers needed to build linux apps.
The gnu-utils mydsl package may be necessary in some situations where the Busybox tools are lacking in command options.
Anything else you may need depends entirely on the program you intend to compile. The source package should include a README or INSTALL file which should tell you what headers are needed to compile the program.
