I take it this is TLF's configure script?

This should work as it is the generic location for the Hamlib header
files when it is built locally.  Is rig.h there?  What are its
permissions?  It should probably have 0644 at a minimum.  Can you as a
normal user cd into /usr/local/include/hamlib and view rig.h and other

The configure script is generated from other scripts on the developer's
system and editing it directly is a temporary fix at best (actually,
it's scary looking at one of those scripts and we normally don't do
it).  However, searching configure for "hamlib" may give you an idea of
where it's looking.  Perhaps whoever generated configure erred by not
having it look in /usr/local/include/hamlib assuming that it will
always be in /usr/include/hamlib.
