     Okay, I was able to enable the readrec installed by apt-get in Debian

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.

I have slowly added the necessary dependencies have been added to my system with the exception of Access.

I ran

./configure --with-bash-headers=/usr/share/bash

which concluded with

warning: libmdb was not found in the system.
warning: the mdb2rec utility won't get built.
warning: not building the recutils bash builtins

The first two warnings are no suprise.

However as to the last warning I have no idea what to look for in the configure.log, other than the obvious



configure: exit 0

What should I look for to determine the error of my ways.
