The standard problem on debian/ubuntu/etc systems is that the lib packages
are divided into two packages each. The run binary and the build includes
etc. So if you get a can't find libsample and yet you know libsample is
installed and works, there is probably another package called
libsample-dev. Install that package and try again... and probably install
the next one that is missing. Do remember that sometimes the you will be
missing sample and the package may be called libsample still.
Yup, all good fun in buildland.
