    Okay, I was able to enable the readrec installed by apt-get in Debian
    Stretch by using the -f option to enable:
    $ enable -f /usr/lib/recutils/bash-builtins/readrec.so readrec
    So, I am studying the Debian packaging to figure out how they get
    ./configure to build readrec. However, I don't know much about Debian
    packaging so I'm not sure what to look for. Any help appreciated!

The recutils configure script checks for the availability of the bash
headers.  By default it looks in /usr/include/bash, which is where they
are alocated in Debian.

You can override that location at configure time like this:

$ ./configure --with-bash-headers=/path/to/bash/sources/

You can also look at config.log to see what went wrong when running
configure.  Most probably the bash headers were not found.
