We believe that you can use any Linux distribution to build OP-TEE, but as maintainers of OP-TEE we are mainly using Ubuntu-based distributions and to be able to build and run OP-TEE there are a few packages that needs to be installed to start with. Therefore install the following packages regardless of what target you will use in the end.

$ sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot autoconf \
        automake bc bison build-essential cscope curl device-tree-compiler \
        expect flex ftp-upload gdisk iasl libattr1-dev libc6:i386 libcap-dev \
        libfdt-dev libftdi-dev libglib2.0-dev libhidapi-dev libncurses5-dev \
        libpixman-1-dev libssl-dev libstdc++6:i386 libtool libz1:i386 make \
        mtools netcat python-crypto python-serial python-wand unzip uuid-dev \
        xdg-utils xterm xz-utils zlib1g-dev
