You do only need build-essential. If you are using the standard Ubuntu
gcc, it will find headers in this subdirectory without any problems. The
only problems arise when you use either

 - a non-Ubuntu compiler which doesn't know about multiarch paths
 - a build system that inspects the filesystem directly, bypassing the
   compiler's built-in include path.
