    I am installing recutils-1.7 on Debian buster/sid and post this for
    your information and/or comment.
    After running ./configure the following warnings were issued:
    libcheck was not found in the system
    unit tests wont be compiled and executed upon make check
    libmdb was not cound in the system
    the mdb2rec utility won’t get built
    building recutils without encryption support
    building recutils without support for uuid types
    not building the recutils bash builtins
    The two warnings that I am curious about and is there a fix are those
    concerning encryption and uuid types.
    Will I be able to use the UUID feature or the encryption feature in
    recutils? If so, are there any limitations?

You won't be able to use ether the %type uuid nor encryption, if you
don't install the needed dependencies.  See README-dev for a description
of the needed packages.
    As to the other warnings:
    I suppose that the libcheck warning may not cause any problem. I ran
    make check. 9 tests, all passed.

libcheck is needed to run the few unit tests.  The utils tests are run
