     I had to install
     Then everything was fine again. Maybe add this to the README/INSTALL file?
This information would be highly specific to Ubuntu/Debian derrived systems.  

I think that "<library> was not found in the system" makes it clear to the 
person installing
that she needs to install <library>.  It does not attempt to say how to do 
that.  The current
README / INSTALL assumes that the reader knows about the general operation of 
their own

I suppose it would be possible to start maintaining a file giving specific
tips for each and every operating system, but I doubt if anyone has the time or 
to maintain such a thing.
