I have a clean opensuse 10.3 installation. When doing a configure, it does not complain when directfb-devel is missing. While doing a make, I did gen some error's about directfb. After installing directfb-devel the problem was solved. Imho the configure script should check for directfb-devel.

I realize there is more info needed on this one. When I find the time to reinstall my machine I will do some more research. When necessary I will try to make a patch. Please leave this ticked open until I have supplied some more info.

The exact error I get is this:

When I install directfb-devel the problem is solved. On my system directfb-devel includes a directory in /usr/include. So I created a patch which does a check for /usr/include/directfb. I don't have a lot of experience with adjusting configure files. So please read the patch file carefully before submitting it to the trunk :) Also, maybe directfb-devel could be installed in an other directory on other distros.

Added patch which does this in a more sensible way - Attempts a small directfb compilation.
