Ok, since it is now working for me I'm just wanting to make sure that
requiring the dev package is what is intended, to maybe add the need
for the dev package to the README and check that the configure check
isn't still flaky so it doesn't cause confusion for others.

Sadly since autotools is the thing that distributions use, it has to
work as well as waf. (Applies to the other thread as well).
