build-essential is a name of a well-known Debian metapackage.

State: not installed
Maintainer: Ubuntu Developers <ubuntu-devel-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Uncompressed Size: 20,5 k
Depends: libc6-dev | libc-dev, gcc (>= 4:5.2), g++ (>= 4:5.2), make, dpkg-dev (>= 1.17.11)
In case of Cygwin, it should probably include autotools and cygport.
