Fedora and Debian mangle the include files into differently named
Configure is looking for:
1) A library named libhdhomerun.so wherever your libs normally go
2) A header file named hdhomerun/hdhomerun.h or
libhdhomerun/hdhomerun.h wherever your include files normally go
3) The include file must pull in the declaration of a function named
hdhomerun_discover_find_devices or hdhomerun_discover_find_devices_v2.
That will be in the file hdhomerun_discover.h, included from
I don't know whether the library must be executable. Configure will
attempt to link it into a test executable, and that must succeed.
Look at the config.ep file that is created when you run configure and
see what it says.
