The error message you posted was the output from configure. What
Timothy was explaining was that in the file config.log it will contain
more details about why vidstab was not found, not just that it was not

The way configure works is that it will try to compile lots of small
programs to see if the expected API is there, and to work out what
libraries it needs to link to. If a library changes its API, the small
program will not compile, which is the same result as if the library
was not found. The output of trying to compile the small program is
stored in config.log, and seeing the output helps determine why the
library was not found.
