There's a long history on this sort of stuff.  There's probably a tutorial on

FWIW I spent an entire day running configure, looking at config.log, fixing
the problem and moving to the next failure.

If configure were actually searching the list as stated, it should not have
exited when it didn't find the header after looking in ${IPATH}/suitesparse.

I take a pretty simple approach to this sort of fubar.  Fix it and keep

BTW just to be clear:

I did NOT post asking for help.  It was a comment in case anyone actually
