I can't believe that I am the only one seeing this.  Those two packages
definitely depend on each other.  I tried manually making the include
directory available for each but then I just fail at the link stage. 
Each of these packages links the library from the other.  How are people
building these packages?  Someone told me that they install the binary
packages first and then build over them.  Is that my only option? 
Someone must have built those binary packages at one time.  How?
