I'm more a Fedora person myself so I may get the package names wrong,
but you need pkg-config, python >= 2.7 and python-docutils. When
building from git you also need the autotools (autoconf automake
libtool) that may be part of build-essential.

> Sorry for the questions, we are more webdevelopers than linux developers. Are there any plans to provide a varnish-modules package for 6.0?

We provide "dist" releases (autotools-independent source archives) and
we should get one soon. Regarding packages, we rely on downstream
distributors for this one.
