I think the clue here is in the "-lrapi..." part.

"-l(Anything)" it's a lib, I guess that's what -l means??
So "-lrapi" is looking for rapi library's, on the list I see librapi2 so
that looks like a good choice. You may need the -dev package as well but
you can try without to see.

If I remember correctly you are trying to compile "syncekonnector", that
package isn't in dapper, but it is in edgy (which I'm running). It only
depends on "synce-kde" and you can find it's dependences here
http://packages.ubuntu.com/edgy/utils/synce-kde which may give you some
help in finding all the packages you need.
