   sudo apt-get install apt-file
   sudo apt-file update
   sudo apt-file search stdlib.c

But I would be surprised if you would find anything. I am sure you
are looking for "stdlib.h".

   sudo apt-get install build-essential

Should do the trick, because if you don't have "stdlib.h", then
you are missing more than only the package that contains "stdlib.h".
