Building DHCP server from sources/repository

I would like to join development on dhcp, but I fail building the sources.
I would expect this to work:

1) git clone
2) cd dhcp
4) make

Unfortunately it fails at step 3 "configure" with this error message:
checking for struct tpacket_auxdata.tp_vlan_tci... yes
configure: error: Where to find or build bind includes and libraries must
be specified

Why does dhcp require bind to be installed? Is there any documentation how
to build dhcp from the repository? It would be helpful to demonstrate this
on a clean new bootstraped linux like this:

sudo debootstrap --arch i386 jessie /path/to/jessie_i386_root
