Did you install libsamplerate from source or did it come with your 

If you installed it from source it probably ended up in /usr/local/lib
and you probably have not set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable.
If this is the case then:

     pkg-config --cflags samplerate

will complain, but:

     PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig pkg-config --cflags samplerate

will work. In other words, you need to do

     export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

before you do a configure in the ecasound directory.
