My setup-pharo.sh script is this

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

apt-get --yes install cmake zip bash-completion ruby git xz-utils 
debhelper devscripts
apt-get --yes install libc6-dev:i386 libasound2:i386 libasound2-dev:i386 
apt-get --yes install libssl-dev:i386 libssl1.0.0:i386 libssh2-1:i386 
libfreetype6-dev:i386 libx11-dev:i386 libsm-dev:i386 libice-dev:i386
apt-get --yes install build-essential gcc-multilib g++
apt-get --yes install libgl1-mesa-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

It gets Pharo and Squeak up and running. I do not know what the minimum 
subset of this would be. I harvested this from some script many years 
ago and just added when necessary.

Hope this helps.
