"configure" will complain if you're missing anything critical.

BIND 9 has relatively few dependencies other than a C compiler and
POSIX-compliant system libraries.  You need openssl if you want to use
crypto; libxml2 if you want XML-based statistics; perl if you want to
run the tests, and some of the tests specifically want Net::DNS.  I
can't think of anything else, offhand.

(I'm assuming you mean BIND 9.  BIND 10 has a longer list.)
