configure: error: INSERT_PACKAGE_X_HERE requires INSERT_PACKAGE_Y_HERE libraries and headers.

This may happen under cygwin when you are running the configure command as part of the configure, make, make install procedure for some package ... and you forgot to install "make".

You may have automake, autoconfigure, and several other packages installed, thinking that make must also have been installed as a dependency ... do not be so naive like I was. Install the make package from cygwin, and you error may just go away.

Hope that helps.
