Look at the config.log file. It lists all of the commands which the
configure script executes, along with any error messages which they

The usual reason for header checks failing (other than the header
itself being absent) is due to failure of #include directives within
the header. E.g. tk.h includes X11 headers, so if you don't have
those, the check for tk.h will fail.
