You will however need to install Python's headers (needed to build some packages), WxPython which is available in most Gnu/Linux distributions, PyGObject and developments version of libxml2 and libxslt (to compile lxml python library).
-The environment variable SAT_INSTALL customises the installation, it contains flags separated by spaces:
-	- "nopreinstall" skips all preinstallation checks
-	- "autodeb" automatically installs missing packages on Debian-based distributions
-	- "nox" disables installation of X-based packages (WxWidgets), this is useful for servers
