Tested (with --enable-drivers=all) on Raspbian (nov 2016 edition). I ran
LCDd successfully with the hd44780 gpio driver. The other drivers I only
compile-tested. Configure warnings I was not able to get rid of:

checking whether build environment is sane... yes
/home/pi/src/lcdproc-0.5.8/missing: Unknown `--is-lightweight' option
Try `/home/pi/src/lcdproc-0.5.8/missing --help' for more information
configure: WARNING: 'missing' script is too old or missing

checking if freetype support has been enabled... yes
configure: WARNING: freetype does not seem to be installed

checking for glcdproclib/glcdprocdriver.h... no
configure: WARNING: The glcdlib driver needs glcdproclib/glcdprocdriver.h

configure: WARNING: The mdm166a driver needs the hid library
checking libmx5000/mx5000.h usability... no
checking libmx5000/mx5000.h presence... no
checking for libmx5000/mx5000.h... no
configure: WARNING: The mx5000 driver needs libmx5000/mx5000.h

checking for vga.h... no
configure: WARNING: The svga driver needs vga.h

Consequently, those drivers were disabled by configure. Casually looking
over it seems libfreetype2 is required, but my distro only
has libfreetype6 packaged. Guess those parts haven't been used in a long
time. I have no idea where the other requested files should come from.

Best Regards,
Anton Eliasson
