It is indeed a relevant source of information and it can be mentioned.
However keep in mind that the dockerfiles contain more than what we need to
compile on a desktop (ccache, devscripts, git-buildpackage,... the list may
grow arbitrarily with time depending on what we find usefull to run the
pipelines). Therefore, we need to maintain also a minimal list of
prerequisites in the installation page anyway, with a single dependencies
line which can be copy-pasted to a terminal for the sake of convenience.
It seems to me that the current compilation instructions are relatively
clear whatever the OS, aren't they?
