The bundle includes the dependencies required to build Python/Zope/ 
Plone from source. However, as the installer is compiling everything  
from source, you will need gcc, g++, and make in order to  
successfully install Plone with the Unified Installer, which includes  
a single shell script (install.sh) that combines the steps you would  
take to compile everything from source.

Correct--one reason why I configured the installer to build  
everything in a self-contained folder.
