During configure there is no check, if all necessary dependencies (like include files from other tools) are installed. Only, when the make fails, you will recognise, that you miss something.

For example: there is no check of uuid-dev for uuid.h.

How to repeat:
Download mysql-gui-tools
Try to compile mysql-gui-common
and miss a dependency

$ ./configure
all is ok
$ make

Suggested fix:
check dependencies during configure.

Many thanks for writing a bug report. We are on the way to implement full functionality of MySQL GUI Tools into MySQL Workbench. We won't add this feature request anymore.
