Err, no. The configure setup is as solid as they come.  But as Peter already
said: "have lib$FOO installed" often means having the _run-time_ library.
Yet to _build_, you also need the -dev package.

You could subscribe to the r-sig-debian list and we can walk you through all
of this there.  It is a pretty friendly low-volume low-noise list. This list
is not the best place for your questions.
