Hello, Swami uses pkg-config to locate FluidSynth. Its likely that you
just don't have the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable pointing to the prefix
where FluidSynth got installed. By default FluidSynth installs in
/usr/local so you would execute this command (put in ~/.bash_profile or
something to make it permanent):
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

Then re-run ./configure for Swami. If it turns out to not be something
like this you can test things from the command line like so:
pkg-config --modversion fluidsynth

Which should output the version you are using, "1.0.3" in this case. At
that point make sure there is a fluidsynth.pc file installed in
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig. Hope that helps.
