Hi Chris, thanks for documenting the RViz dependencies!

We are aware that the build instructions are not very clear right now.
The following pull request should make it clearer:

Some comments regarding your findings:
- Thanks to your post I noticed that the instructions still missed curl in the dependency list and added it.
- FreeImage is currently not required for building RViz. The error message is printed but it is not relevant for now.
- SDL is built automatically together with OGRE. It should therefore not be necessary to install the apt package.
However, installing the SDL apt package also installs two required dependencies, namely `libgles2-mesa-dev` and `libglu1-mesa-dev`. These are included in the new build instructions.
