In plain English that means "package libginac-dev is not installed".

libginac1.3* contains only shared library, so it is sufficient for
running *already compiled* programs.  But for compiling/linking with
GiNaC you need also libginac-dev.

Technically, this is not true: installing packages on KNOPPIX (and
probably any derived distro) _without remastering_ is possible.
Regular 'aptitude install', 'dpkg -i' work fine.
