I do not think I encountered this problem on Debian. Almost every time
I had config/build problems they were caused by some missing header file,
a missing static library or a missing link for the longer name
(.so.X.Y) of a shared library.
Those types of files seem to be included in the *-dev packages.

Without a look at `config.log' it is hard for me to say what the
particular problem might be.
